The University of Ghana School of Pharmacy (UGSOP) was established in 2007 as a constituent of the College of Health Sciences.  The School was accredited by both the National Accreditation Board and the Pharmacy Council to offer courses that lead to the award of the Bachelor of Pharmacy Degree. The five academic departments of the School are:

  • Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry
