The Pharmacy Department has been internationally recognized in a ceremony which took place in Blantyre in June 2015. Representatives of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP), in collaboration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), signed an agreement with College of Medicine which makes the Pharmacy Department a new member of the FIP-UNESCO UNITWIN African Centre of Excellence in Pharmacy Education. It is a UNESCO sponsored initiative hosted under the UNITWIN scheme (for university-twinning). This UNITWIN collaboration is the first ever in the field of higher education for health professionals and the first for global pharmaceutical education. In bringing together pharmacy schools from all regions of the world with UNESCO and FIP, the UNITWIN Network in Global Pharmacy Education Development (GPhEd) enables synchronised development in pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences education and improves communication for scientific innovation and healthcare outcomes.
