The Setsunan University Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences was established in 1983 on the basis of Setsunan University's educational ideals to cultivate human capabilities, practical skills and powers of integration, and to foster intellectual professional people who can discover and solve problems by themselves. The objective of this faculty is to train pharmacists with a high sense of ethics, spiritually rich humanity and practical ability, who will contribute to the evolution of healthcare in our country, the promotion of health and welfare, and conservation of the living environment. We strive to train pharmacists with advanced expertise and rich humanity through pharmaceutical education and research full of passion and enthusiasm and positive social contributions. In addition medical education in the specialized knowledge, skills and attitude (science, art and behavior) of a pharmacist, we emphasize human education and continuing education to foster action, thinking, teamwork and humanity. For this purpose, this school is developing its own education program and educational methods, and implementing advanced education.

Together with recent advancement of medical care and changes in the atmosphere surrounding pharmacists, pharmacy education became a 6-year course in 2006, and education aimed at training researching pharmacists of the future was started at this university. By enhancing the pharmacy education/research program and environmental improvement, we aim to train diverse human resources responsible for the next generation in a broad range of fields, including pharmacists who are active as leaders in drug treatment in clinical practices such as advanced medical treatment and home care, and pharmacists who can play an active role in drug discovery and development. In addition, a 4-year doctoral program beyond the 6-year pharmacy course is important from the viewpoint of training future leaders in education and research institutions such as universities, medical facilities and pharmaceutical companies.A 4-year graduate school of pharmaceutical sciences, a division of pharmaceutical sciences and doctoral program in clinical pharmacy Together with recent advancement of medical care and changes in the atmosphere surrounding pharmacists, pharmacy education became a 6-year course in 2006, and education aimed at training researching pharmacists of the future was started at this university.
