A sincere welcome to the Pharmacy Department (Nelson Mandela University). Our intention is to be a hub of excellence in producing pharmacy graduates both at under and postgraduate level, who will be agents of positive change in the health sector to the benefit of society. We are set on attracting, recognizing and embracing students, staff and stakeholders from all communities of our continent as well as internationally, who stand for humanity and promote health and social justice for all. We are focused on seeking, creating, teaching and applying pharmaceutical knowledge in support of the imminent implementation of National Health Insurance (NHI). Our department collaborates with a number of pharmacy schools at a national and international level to create opportunities for all students to be exposed to different curricula and experiences. We have an authentic and vibrant interaction with all our internal role players.
