Dean’s welcome message

Welcome to the Faculty of Pharmacy, Mahasarakham University, where education, community and culture meet.  Your time here in our faculty will be joyful, exciting, challenging, and fulfilling.  When you leave you will be a highly competent and professional pharmacist in providing pharmaceutical care and other health services for the community.   

Our faculty seeks to educate PharmD students who will be prepared to meet the health care needs of Thailand—especially the Isan region. We are known nationally for our achievement in student performance with a high pass percentage in the national pharmacy licensing examination and a 100% employment rate. We offer outcome-based education in five programs: one undergraduate PharmD program, one Ph.D. program and 3 master programs.  The master programs are an M.Sc. in Herbal and Thai Traditional medicine, an M.Pharm in Clinical pharmacy, and an M.Pharm in Primary care pharmacy.  Our faculty is active in research in herbal and natural products, clinical pharmacy, social pharmacy, evidence-based syntheses, primary care practice, and elderly health innovation using Thai traditional wisdom.  The focus of all the research is on the community needs and benefits.

The faculty offers student-centered spiraled learning with integrated activities from the first year through the 6th year in the PharmD program.  Our goal is for the students to enjoy their studies with the support of our advisors who are eager to see their students succeed.  Clinical practice, pharmaceutical sciences and community skills have been integrated into the class work, clerkship, and practicum placements throughout the program. 

Our students are encouraged to work with students and health professionals in other fields such as medicine, nursing, architecture, informatics, and engineering through the Inter-Professional Education Program (IPE) that prepares them for teamwork and promotes 21st century skills. 

We look forward to welcoming you into our family—pharmacy@MSU—a community that creates socially responsible pharmacists engaged in the community.
