Pharmacy is a noble profession since the services ultimately reach the suffering humanity, either directly or indirectly. Pharmacy professionals deal with the life saving, pain relieving, problem solving substances – ‘The Drugs ’ !
A drug during its long journey from the lab until it is administered to the patient, passes through the hands of a pharmacy professional at various stages like discovery, synthesis or isolation and purification, testing for advantageous pharmacological effects and absence of toxicological effects, formulation development, manufacturing and testing of drugs and ultimately medication management in the hospital.
We at Amrita, inspired by our Chancellor AMMA, try hard to mould the budding professionals competent in knowledge and skills, powered with values, so that they can be better humans and best professionals for tomorrow.
