College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences receives international accreditation
Director Mike Rouse was welcomed by Professor Nageeb Hassan, dean of the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, at the workshop hosted at Ajman Saray Hotel.
The workshop served as a preliminary step to the College of Pharmacy being accredited by ACPE.
The benefit of such an accreditation, as noted by Hassan, is offering global standards in education to current and future students. In addition, the honor speaks to the level of graduates emerging from the college as high-level pharmacists who will enter the work force with the global seal of ACPE, making them more appealing to companies.
The noteworthy accreditation is also expected to increase the number of applicants interested in attending the College of Pharmacy’s existing program.
Hassan also noted that the recognition sets the bar for expectations from both college professors and students. Furthermore, it complements the academic accreditation in the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in the United Arab Emirates.
During the workshop, Rouse spoke to the many benefits of the accreditation and the guidelines implemented in order for the college to maintain the status. Before concluding the workshop, the ACPE director voiced his eagerness to work with Ajman University, as the college is one of the first in its field from the entire United Arab Emirates.
