The University of Nizwa send a team of three students to participate in the SIPHA Competition
The University of Nizwa recently sent a team of three students from the College of Health and Applied Science to participate in the Saudi International Pharmaceutical Sciences (SIPHA) competition in Riyadh. The SIPHA project aims to bring experts and individuals interested in the pharmacy field together to share and improve pharmaceutical and health-related practices. This year, 36 Arab universities participated in the competition.
To participate in the SIPHA competition, each university must assemble a team of three final-year pharmacy students. The University of Nizwa team, consisting of Ibrahim Hamza, Mustafa Safa, and Waleed Al Mawali, represented their institution in the competition. The competition features four main rounds, with only the top ten teams advancing to the first round, and just four of those ten teams making it to the final round.
According to the team, their participation in the competition proved to be highly beneficial as it allowed them to gain valuable exposure to international experiences. Additionally, the competition provided them with the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the diverse curricula taught in Arabic countries, which they believe will be immensely helpful in their future endeavours. Overall, the team members felt that their participation in this competition was an enriching experience that helped them broaden their horizons and learn about different perspectives.
The University of Nizwa students performed exceptionally well in the competition, demonstrating their knowledge, skills, and dedication to the pharmacy field. The SIPHA competition and conference proved to be a valuable opportunity for the University of Nizwa students to learn and grow personally and professionally.
