The Dean's Message

Istanbul Yeni Yüzyıl University Faculty of Pharmacy was established in 2010 and has since trained numerous researchers, faculty members, and talented pharmacists in various fields.

The faculty places great importance on integrating scientific research into its undergraduate curriculum. Practical studies designed for undergraduate students often involve following an experimental scenario to learn about a well-known phenomenon. However, to also include real scientific research where previously unanswered questions are asked and researchers spend a long time solving "worthwhile" problems, we have included the "product design project" conducted in the 4th year and the final project in the last year in our curriculum. The theoretical courses and laboratory work leading these projects are designed to educate our students on the fundamental knowledge and experimental skills necessary for independent research. Additionally, our students can gain professional experience by interning at pharmacies, hospitals, or industries, or by working as interns in departments. Through these activities, we aim to encourage pharmacists who can conduct scientific research in all areas, including drug discovery and design.

We believe that a teacher can have a lasting impact on a student's life, shaping and moulding them. We have a highly experienced, qualified, motivated, and determined faculty staff that brings a rich variety of experiences and knowledge from both the academic and industrial fields, as well as diverse backgrounds and experiences from various fields. We encourage our students to find their own creativity. While maintaining an atmosphere of honesty, kindness, and respect, we allow for a wide range of ideas and the free expression of different opinions.

Teaching and learning are essential parts of the academic program. Continuous assessment and monitoring are integral to the curriculum. Our academic staff plays a significant role in monitoring, advising, and shaping careers.

Are you driven by the desire and passion to make a difference in the health and happiness of humanity through drug development and treatment? If so, we look forward to welcoming you to the Faculty of Pharmacy for an exciting learning and groundbreaking research journey.
