One of the top reasons for students, as well as parents, in selecting and preferring Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham as the study destination over other top-rung universities and colleges, is the guaranteed peace-of-mind factor that it provides: placements! Of course, there may be other important aspects like a lush-green, serene, sprawling campus at the foot of the hills, which renders it an ideal ambience for the pursuit of knowledge; or the scores of qualified faculty experts from the best institutions of the world.  The infrastructure is great too, and includes the university’s wi-fi campus, libraries, laboratories and workshops.  The university’s Chancellor and Pro Chancellor would emphasise that the key differentiator at Amrita is the value system that is imparted in today’s fast-paced world, to help students with not just an education for a living, but also an education for life.

Principal’s Message

Dr. Sabitha M., Principal, Amrita School of Pharmacy

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.
