Pharmaceutical Microbiology is a discipline in the B.Pharm. Degree Pharmacy Programme of the University of Ibadan. It is also offered at the Postgraduate levels of M.Sc., M.Phil/Ph.D and Ph.D. At the inception of the Pharmacy Programme in 1980 Pharmaceutical Microbiology was integrated into Pharmaceutics and Industrial Pharmacy.
Within the subsequent decade (1980 – 1990) it was accorded a joint recognition with Clinical Pharmacy as a Department of Pharmaceutical Microbiology and Clinical Pharmacy. In consonance with the policy of the Pharmacists’ Council of Nigeria, Pharmaceutical Microbiology became a full-fledged professional Department in November, 2003. It has been undergoing development since then.
