About UNIBEN PharmD Conversion Program
The main goal of this program is to develop pharmacist faculty as well as hospital and community pharmacy preceptors who currently do not have PharmD degrees to apply patient-centered approach in the education of pharmacy students.
This special program is time bound and will cooperate with the active cooperation of Pharmacist Council of Nigeria (PCN) and Nigerian Association of Pharmacists and Pharmacists in America, Inc (NAPPSA).
This will be the last time that candidates join the program, as subsequent applications for PharmD Conversion will apply to the regular two-year conversion program.
