The College of Pharmacy of Our Lady of Fatima University is committed to developing ethical, professionally competent, research- and community service-oriented, and environmentally conscious pharmacy professionals. Founded in the year 2000, it has evolved into one of the leading pharmacy schools in the country.
Over the years, the College has responded to meet the needs of the pharmacy industry by producing thousands of licensed pharmacists. These professionals are now a significant part of the country’s workforce. A wide range of careers await pharmacy graduates of OLFU, particularly in the field of hospital pharmacy, community pharmacy, manufacturing pharmacy, regulatory, research, academia, and government service.
The College of Pharmacy in the OLFU campuses of Valenzuela, Quezon City, Antipolo, and Pampanga have been named as Top Performing Schools by the Professional Regulations Commission for the excellent performance of its graduates in the Pharmacist Licensure Examinations. It has also produced a number of board topnotchers.
In 2015, the Valenzuela City Campus was recognized as a Center of Development by the Commission on Higher Education.
Today, students of the College of Pharmacy reap the full benefits from OLFU’s world-class learning platforms and resources which are paired with state-of-the-art facilities and laboratories—all delivered by a competent teaching faculty through a masterful mix of learning modalities: online, distance or, when health conditions permit, face-to-face learning.
It is also noteworthy that OLFU is one among a few select schools to be granted the Certificate of Authority by the CHEd, allowing it to conduct limited face-to-face classes in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic; a testament to the University’s established and effective community safety protocols.
