The Dean’s Word, Prof. Dr. Haydar Al-Tukmagi

In the name of Allah the most gracious and merciful

As the dean of Baghdad college of medical sciences, and on behalf of its academics and administrative personnel in both departments (Department of Pharmacy and Department of Nursing), I welcome you all to our website and hope it will serve you best. It is an honor to be at the top of chain of command to run this college, which was established 20 years ago, precisely in 2000. At the beginning, we had only one department and its first class graduated in 2005 under the name of Baghdad College of Pharmacy. This college was founded by an extremely experienced academics and scholars in the field of Pharmacy whose their main aim has always been serving Iraq and its science seekers. We have always been keen on choosing the best of those who are willing to embark on their journey in the world of Pharmacy to serve their community through providing mainstream therapeutic services. Through the years, we have provided the healthcare sector with highly competent pharmacists and the educational sector with the best higher education candidates in all majors. It gives me pleasure to see that our alumni have stretched all over the globe whether as pharmacists who have successfully obtained a degree equivalency in the greatest healthcare systems in countries like the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia, and many other developed countries, or as a distinguished student who intend to pursue their higher education in such countries. After the enormous success achieved in the Department of Pharmacy; providing the health care sector with another highly important area of expertise, namely Nursing, was a must. Thus, establishing the department of Nursing took place in 2017, which became the nucleus of the great efforts exerted behind our college walls. It is very well known that Nursing is of significant importance since those who take it as a career are deliberately called (Angeles of Mercy). In one year time, our first Nursing class will graduate and we are impatiently looking forward to seeing that. We are honored to have the best professionals in both fields. Also, we are keen on maintaining a highly required scientific reliability through our rigorous pedagogical programs, so our alumni perfectly represent us in all healthcare sectors that are found to serve the Iraqi community.

Hereby, I pledge my gratitude and respect to everyone who visits our website.
