Bachelor of Pharmacy
In our day to day life pharmacists play an imperative role as they are especially involved in research and manufacture of medicines. As a pharmacist, one has to twig the concerto and effect of medicines. Thus, pharmacy is closely associated with the scientific study. This course of pharmacy aims to develop an understanding of how the body works, the effects of disease, how medicines are made delivered to affect the body and importantly how to ensure that patients get the maximum benefit from medicines with the minimum incidence of side effects. B.Pharma degree is a good launching pad for higher studies.

Pharmacists dispense prescription drugs to patients. They provide information about those drugs and help patients understand the instructions their doctors or other health practitioners provided. They monitor their patients health and progress to make sure their medications are working effectively and safely. A wide array of opportunities is also present in the education and research industry. As the use of prescription drugs increases demand for pharmacists will grow in every existing community and with this change in scenario self-employment is another major scope for a pharmacist.
The department of Pharmacology is concerned with the aspects of education and research activities involving effects of drugs on living organisms in respect to chemical nature, origin (natural or synthetic), which affects a biological system.

Pharmacology is an interdisciplinary discipline employing investigational approaches that may include biochemistry, physiology, immunology, molecular biology, genetics and cell biology. Department of Pharmacology addresses these issues from an interdisciplinary perspective.
