The First Private University in Malaysia to Offer an Alternative to Pharmacy Graduates through Our Masters Programmes

Taylor’s University, through is the first private university to be included in the list of premises for the training of provisionally registered pharmacists that has been recognized by the Pharmacy Board of Malaysia.

This development will allow a number of Provisionally Registered Pharmacists to complete their training and become fully registered pharmacists at the end of the two years. Taylor’s School of Pharmacy Dean, Emeritus Professor Dr P.T. Thomas said that this will allow Taylor’s University to play a part towards contributing to the professional development of future pharmacists.

“This initiative is offered as one of the 1+1 options that pharmacy graduates are required to undertake before they can be registered as pharmacists. The pharmacy preceptors at the School of Pharmacy have undergone the necessary training by the Ministry of Health.

“Through this, successful applicants have the option to enter the workforce as registered pharmacists at the end of the two years as well as possess a Master’s degree. This provides them an edge over their peers as it not only allows them to have an added educational qualification but also provides them an additional career path of a lecturer,” said Emeritus Prof. Thomas.

Those who would like to apply for this initiative can contact Debora Caroline from Taylor’s Graduate School at 03-5629 5324
