Dear All, Pharmacy as a profession is an integral part of health care system in India and across the globe. It is propagated multifold with new trends in Indian education system and career opportunities in health care system.

The pharmacy profession is undergoing speedy changes. Pharmacist today is emerging as a Health Care Professional, involved not only in the safe and efficacious manufacture of drugs and pharmaceuticals, but also in newer profiles related to research & development, clinical research, marketing & distribution, regulatory affairs, pharmacovigilance and so on. Pharmacist has also become an integral part of hospital & community pharmacy.

The emergence of multidrug resistant infections, newer disease conditions and increasing health awareness in society have contributed to an increased demand for Pharmacists. Owing to this India has emerged as a third-largest healthcare professional group in the world. India is also known as a ‘Pharmacy of the World.’ due to its higher global position in Pharmaceutical production. India ranks third worldwide for production by volume and 14th by value.
