    Re: What is the scope of Pharma D graduates in India?

    My dear friend , Pharm.D person is not deals with researches directly. Pharm.D is related with patient counseling and prescribing right drug with right dosage, ADR etc.
    In India, till now past- tradition iscontinue that doctors are diagnosing and prescribing but they are not really deal with Drugs. Only We pharmacist can learn about drugs and their effects.
    So, Pharm.D may develop new pattern which is running in US and other developed countries, that doctors are only diagnosing and PHARMACISTS ARE PRESCRIBING MEDICINES.

    Also after doing Pharm.D, you can be registered pharmacist all over the world. so you can practise as pharmacist anywhere.
    If you have marketing experience, it is good because you are some what habitant withbrand names and other formulations. These experience will not directly useful but on some extent you will get benefit from it

    BEST OF Luck for you future

    Hello.............

    Pharm.D person does not deal with researches directly. it is related with patient counselling and prescribing the right drug with the right dosage.

    In India, till now the past tradition of doctors prescribing the drugs is still followed. But only the pharmacists can know about the right effects of the drugs.

    Therefore Pharm-D may develop a new pattern about doctors just diagnosing and the pharmacists prescribing the drugs.

    After completing your pharmacy course you can practise pharmacy anywhere all over the world.

    If you have marketing experience, it is good because you are some what habitant with brand names and other formulations.This experience will be a benefit for you.

    So in Indis there is a good scope for Pharm-D........

    Thank you..

    Thumbs up Re: What is the scope of Pharma D graduates in India?

    Hello Friend

    Firstly i want to correct your mistake the course is Pharm D it is not Pharma D, as many of the young aspirants who have chosen Life Sciences stream do not know about the Pharm D course.

    It is introduced in India so as to change the present structure of prescribing the medicines, to the patients by the Doctors. It is you who deals with the Drugs its Mode of Action, Target Site, Adverse Events, ADME properties (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism and Excretion) of drugs starting from the intake of the drug by the patient.

    It is you the Pharmacy people who consider the patient physical factors and the body conditions to adjust the dose of the drug to the patient, but in India the scenario is totally different that doctors prescribe the medicine and adjust the dose and the patients are also familiarized with the format even you prescribe they wont agree.

    To surpass this system the Pharmacy Council of India introduced the Pharm D course, it duration is 6 years, where you will be awarded with the Masters Degree directly and directly you can go for Ph.D to get Doctorate.

    Pharm D entrance eligibility requires you must have completed your 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry and Biology or Mathematics as your main subjects. or

    you must have completed your Bachelor Degree in Pharmacy through lateral entry scheme you can directly enter into 4th year of the Pharm D course. or

    If you have completed Diploma in Pharmacy, then also through lateral entry scheme you can join in Pharm D course in 2nd year.

    During the Final year of the course you will be having the Hospital internship where you have to meet the patients and gives them the correct medication with the correct dose at regular intervals, so after the completion of your course the Pharm D graduate main role lies in Hospitals.

    Apart from this you can also step in to the pharmaceutical industries in production and analysis departments or you can go for research scientist at famous institutes in India.

    But the situation for Pharm D graduates is not yet developed in India, so after completion of the course you have to struggle to get placement.

    Indian government is not at all considering the value of the Pharmacy Profession, even the RMP's are opening the clinics why cant the pharmacy graduates to open a clinic who all well know about the action of drugs for a particular disease state.

    So friend in my view think twice and also ask suggestion regarding this other well known persons i think the future may be good for Pharm D profession.

    Regards.

    dear
    pharma d students not deal with the researches it basically helps the patients by counselling with them and prescribing the right type of drug to them
    from past the doctors are basically used to prescribe medicine.but the knowledge is basically with the pharma-d.
    pharma-d students can be also go to marketing business as he have knowleddge about the drugs also so useful to him.
    he can also apply for some medical departments in sone hospitals.
    i hope you got the required answer.
