MBBSPharmacology has developed as a distinct discipline to go hand in hand with modern medicine. There is a growing demand for pharmacist for pharmaceutical industries as well as practices. Pharmacists represent the major component of continuing healthcare for the community. Ample opportunities for employment exist for graduates as there is a recognized demand for skilled practitioners.

In keeping with this demand as well as development of this science, the Department of Pharmacy is offering a Bachelor of Pharmacy (B Pharm) program of four year duration, developed in close association with the industry to prepare graduates for a career as pharmacy practitioners.

Bachelor of Pharmacy incorporates diverse practices such as community or hospital pharmacy, dispensing, medication management and health counseling to equip graduates with skills for immediate employment.

Students develop knowledge and skills in health promotion, learn treatment of minor ailments, and become fluent in communication and health information management.

In first and second year, students study core subjects in some basic sciences including chemistry, mathematics and statistics, computer use, microbiology, anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, nutrition and molecular genetics.

To complement these scientific disciplines, there are subjects in various pharmaceutical sciences presented in the first three years. These subjects are organic and medicinal agents, pharmaceutical microbiology, pharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics. Together, the pharmaceutical science and the basic science subjects provide a solid foundation for studies in the professional aspects of pharmacy. Specialist subjects include pharmacy practice, pharmacy residency, professional practice and therapeutics.

The course is designed to enable the students to develop a firm foundation in the principles, methods and contributions of Pharmacology — the science of multiple aspects of interaction of chemical agents with biological systems. The graduates of this program should develop strong ethical values to utilize the knowledge and skill they acquire in this program for the benefit and welfare of humanity. They should also be capable of assuming positions of responsibility within the pharmacologic community.

The program begins with general education in languages — English, Mathematics, Computer language. To develop a strong humane base, courses in Humanities, Social sciences, Physical sciences, Biological sciences are included. Gradually courses in human physiology, human genetics, cellular communication, principles of drug action, drug metabolism, molecular pharmacology, endocrine pharmacology, neuro pharmacology, cardiovascular-renal pharmacology, toxicology are introduced.

Clinical pharmacology is given with an emphasis on molecular mechanism with which drug acts in the body and by which the body transforms drug.

The sequence of courses begins with courses on general education — language courses on humanities and social and physical sciences and gradually the pharmacology courses are introduced. Semester-wise the course offering pattern are as follows:-

From 11th — 12th semester, with permission of the faculty, student will choose special topic of interest and concentrate study on those topics. In this stage student will take mostly seminar courses along with practical application in drug activities.

13th —14th semester — will be the practicum semester. Student will take independent research work and at the end of the semester student will present the report before the audience and defend report to complete degree.
