College Profile

Pharmacy is a versatile, dynamic and increasingly diverse profession, one which creates so many opportunities for service. Pharmacists work in a wide variety of health care settings in the pharmaceutical industry (carrying out a wide range of activities from R& D manufacturing to quality control, packaging, quality assurance etc.,) in practice settings (hospital & community) in academics, regulatory affairs and clinical research. Pharmacists are health care professionals whose professional responsibilities include seeking to ensure that people derive maximum therapeutic benefit from their treatments with medicines. This requires them to keep abreast of development and advances in knowledge & technology related to manufacture and use of medicines, professional standard requirements and laws governing pharmacy.
