History & Background
NTUSP, the first public pharmacy school in Taiwan, was established in 1953 under the College of Medicine, National Taiwan University, with a 4-year B.S. Pharm. program. From 2014 it enrolls only 6-year Pharm.D. students.

Graduate Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences was established in 1970 to promote graduate study, starting first with the M.S. program followed by the Ph.D. program in 1983. The institute was divided into three sub-departments in 1989: Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmacognosy, and Pharmaceutics. Hospital Pharmacy was added as the fourth sub-department in 1983. In the year of 2000, Hospital Pharmacy sub-department, was expanded and upgraded as the Graduate Institute of Clinical Pharmacy, which is endowed with a mission to foster pharmacy professionals to devote to clinical services, teaching and research, and to advance the quality of pharmacotherapy and clinical research in Taiwan. In the same year, another sub-department, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, was established to facilitate the education of pharmaceutical scientists under the Graduate Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences. In 2008, the Graduate Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences was reorganized to three new sub-departments: Drug Discovery, Pharmaceutical Technology and Biopharmaceutics.

In addition to the regular B.S. Pharm and Pharm.D program, NTUSP also offers two other parallel course programs for NTU students who are interests in the field. One is the Molecular Pharmaceutics Program which was set up in 2006, and the other is Chinese Herbal Medicine Program which was established in 2007.

NTUSP has faculties of different specialties to offer various courses to meet the needs of society. For the undergraduate program, pharmaceutical sciences courses (medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutics, pharmacognosy, pharmaceutical biotechnology, and pharmaceutical analysis) and pharmacy practice courses are offered to foster pharmacists for pharmacy practice, pharmacy administration and drug industry.

NTUSP is the first pharmacy school in Taiwan that pioneered the 6-year Pharm.D. program since 2009. After 5 years of parallel 4-year B.S. Pharm and 6-year Pharm.D. programs, beginning in 2014, NTUSP offers only the 6-year Pharm.D. program. This program follows the Accreditation Council of Pharmacy Education (ACPE) standards and provides integrated courses to excel pharmacy education. In addition to hospital externship and community pharmacy externship, students must finish 36-week advance pharmacy practice experiences (APPE). The APPE consists of 24-week core courses in hospital and community and 12-week elective courses. Students can choose pharmacy administration, industrial pharmacy, pharmaceutical manufacturer, research, hospital pharmacy, or community pharmacy as electives according to their interest. There are also industrial pharmacy and pharmaceutical manufacturer externship as elective courses. This program is expected to equip pharmacists with strong therapeutic and clinical competency to meet the needs of health-care system, health-care administration, industrial pharmacy, academia, and other pharmaceutical fields in our society at large.
