This institution was established in July 1974 as Department of Pharmacy in Faculty of Medicine with assistance of a grant from British council. The first intake of 16 students had to take most of their first year basic science courses at the main Campus of the University of Dar es Salaam, together with B.Sc. General, B.Sc. Education and B.Sc. Geology students. Fifteen of these students graduated three years later, in 1977. Most of the lecturers who started off the course were expatriates from Britain, Kenya and Malawi . Since then we have been producing quality pharmacists who are now the backbone of the Health care system in Tanzania and neighboring countries.
The School has had links with several institutions, including the British Council - supported links with the Universities of Aston, Manchester, Bradford and Sunderland. These links ceased in the late eighties because of limited funds and change of priorities. Close ties also exist with the Universities of Illinois at Chicago and Iowa in the United States,
Research and dissemination of research findings are one of the core values of our school. Students are trained to do research in various aspects of drug discovery, manufacturing, quality control and utilization. They then propose and perform original research as a partial requirement for the award of the degree of the Bachelor of pharmacy.
