Home - Department of Pharmacy Practice

Introduction

The department was constituted primarily to prepare the Pharma student aspirants and faculties to acquire the knowledge, skills and professional attitudes for functioning as quality professionals. The department has a team of dedicated faculty members and we have the proactive support of a tertiary care teaching hospital on the same campus. The digital resources we share with the hospital, under the same management, provide a scholarly environment. Pharmaceutical care is the responsible provision of drug therapy for achieving definite outcomes that improve a patient’s quality of life. However, pharmacists in India receive their training with a product focus rather than the patient focus. Managing drug therapy, counselling patients on proper use of medications and monitoring drug therapy outcomes have become a major issue in recent times.
