The School of Pharmacy was established in 1992 with the mission to develop future leaders who will create better ways to discover, develop, and customize medicine. On the eve of its 25th anniversary, it is gratifying to take stock on the impact this pioneering pharmacy school has made in tertiary education in Hong Kong. In rapid succession since the introduction of the BPharm program in 1992, the school launched an M.Phil and a PhD program to train research scientists, and shortly thereafter a MCP self-financed program to train clinical pharmacists. More recently in 2012, it launched the PMQ self-financed program to answer government’s mandate to upgrade the quality of the drug products manufactured locally. With more pharmacists in place to take care of the dispensing function, pharmacists with the aptitude and advanced training will then be able to practice pharmacy at a higher level. This is what would be expected of pharmacy practice in an advanced economy like that in Hong Kong.
