ABOUT PHARMACY PRACTICE

Department of Pharmacy Practice had its dawn in 2008, and was the fountain head of Pharm.D and Pharm.D (PB) by 2010. The Department along with KIMS-Al Shifa Hospital provides one of the best clinical exposures to its students. The entire team of doctors and health care system along with mentors and clinical preceptors make sure to streamline our students to be globally competent. Here, rather than long periodic classroom lectures, we believe in creating ample opportunities for our students to utilize, explore and learn. We make sure to conduct periodic Professional and Personality Development class, hosting workshops and seminars, community oriented health services and awareness classes initiated by our students, annual Student Exchange Program with AIMST University Malayasia since a year. Pharmacy Practice has also been a research hub since the beginning which is evident with the initiation of ClinPharm, Journal Club, Drug Information Centre, Patient Counseling Centre, highly significant academic research and project works. Our success is when we see our students performing outstandingly in academics bagging university ranks as well as achieving laurels and credits in poster and oral presentation, state and national quiz competitions, research publications, higher studies and scholarships. Our students are the pioneers of dedication and excellence.

The incomparable journey of Pharmacy Practice since a decade is the awe-inspiring effort of everyone who is a part of it.
