School of Pharmaceutical Sciences


School of Pharmaceutical Sciences

The School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Shizuoka, was established in 1953 as Shizuoka Prefectural College of Pharmacy. The school was reorganized and became part of the University of Shizuoka in 1987. Over the past century, the school has produced a great number of graduates who have played important roles in various capacities, domestically and internationally.
The field of Pharmaceutical Sciences covers a wide comprehensive range of studies related to various aspects of human health and life in general such as the prevention and treatment of diseases and environmental protection. The school is organized into two divisions: the Division of Pharmacy and the Division of Pharmaceutical Sciences that offer 6- and 4-year educational programs, respectively. The 6-year program provides an opportunity for students to learn clinical pharmacy and to develop a high degree of technical competency as professional pharmacists, aiming at educating students who will contribute to the medical sciences. The 4-year program provides opportunities for students to learn the basic sciences of drug discovery that are required at pharmaceutical companies, universities, or other academic facilities, and aims to educate future scientists with high motivation. A unique quality of the school is that students decide their educational programs during third year after they have fully understood the specialties of the two educational courses.

Our graduates are working in various areas such as hospitals, community pharmacies, the civil services of local and national governments, as well as in the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic industries. Most of the graduates from the 4-year program go on to graduate studies. Our Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences enjoys a nationwide and international reputation for its high quality education and excellent research environment. Our Graduate School was selected as a 21st Century Center of Excellence (2001-2006) and a Global Center of Excellence (2007-2012) by Japan's ministry of education. In these programs, research collaboration between our university's School of Food and Nutritional Sciences and School of Pharmaceutical Sciences deepened and made significant contributions to the development of the new research field of health-longevity sciences. On the basis of these achievements, we re-organized the two departments' related graduate schools to establish a single Graduate School of Integrated Pharmaceutical and Nutritional Sciences for the first time, with the goal of preparing for Japan's fast-approaching super-aged society.
