Principal’s Message

Dr. S. Mohan

M. Pharm., Ph.D., Professor & Principal

India has a vast and growing pharmaceutical industry. An increasing number of hospitals, nursing homes and pharmaceutical companies all over the country are a clear indication of the growing scope in pharmacy profession.Pharmacy offers reasonably good career opportunities both by way of jobs as well as in terms of starting own business.In the coming decades, pharmacists are expected to become more integral within the health care system.
The basic goals of the pharmacy professionals are to discover, develop, manufacture, market and dispense drugs. Last three decades, pharmacists are increasingly expected to be compensated for their patient care skills. In particular, Medication Therapy Management (MTM) includes the clinical services that pharmacists can provide for their patients.

Such services include the thorough analysis of all medication (prescription, non-prescription, and herbals) currently being taken by an individual. The result is a reconciliation of medication and patient education resulting in increased patient health outcomes and decreased costs to the health care system.
