Saudi Arabia, Riyadh, May. 20, 2019:  AbbVie, a research-based global biopharmaceutical company, today announced that it has been formally recognized as the leading pharmaceutical provider of pharmacy training for the year 2019 at King Saud University’s Annual Preceptor Retreat Day. 

King Saud University’s ‘Preceptor of The Year Excellence Award’ was awarded to one company from private, government and pharmaceutical sectors, with AbbVie winning the competitive pharmaceutical category. Students from King Saud University voted for the company which had the highest quality of preceptors, as well as the most engaging training content and structure. 
 
Dr. Aws Alshamsan, Dean of the College of Pharmacy at King Saud University, concludes, “It was my pleasure to award AbbVie the excellence in pharmaceutical training at our Annual Preceptor Retreat Day. Pharmacists are an integral part of our local communities and play a vital role in our care.
