Amrita School of Pharmacy, an integral component of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, is the first to start functioning among the schools under Health Sciences campus. Located in the vibrant city of Kochi, Kerala, Amrita School of Pharmacy offers training for one of the most sought after professional courses. The School’s commitment to excellence in healthcare is in line with the overall objective of the Kochi - based Health Sciences campus of the institution. The School of Pharmacy strives not only to provide quality education in pharmaceutical sciences but also to establish itself in research and serves as an ideal platform for the overall development of highly competent pharmacy professionals. The School maintains an exemplary clinical practice and conducts community outreach programmes that address the needs of Kochiites and the society at large.
The School is housed in a self-contained five-storied building and is located away from the hustle and bustle of the main hospital within the campus, yet has access to all the clinical services. This optimal location provides a calm and quiet atmosphere conducive for learning.
Once the Pharmacy Council of India (PCI) recognised and announced the launch of the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm. D.) programme in 2008 all over India, Amrita School of Pharmacy, taking full advantage of its in-house hospital and the associated healthcare services, started offering the six - years Pharm. D. (Regular) and three years Pharm. D. (Post Baccalaureate) programmes from 2010.
The two programmes were the first of their kind in the state of Kerala and the School’s enrolment expanded significantly due to this landmark achievement.
The gradual yet steady thrust in research has culminated in the registration of candidates for the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) programme.
Since the School strongly believes in the teachings of its respected Chancellor Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma), it advocates the inculcation of cultural values in one’s day - to - day activities. Hence, value education is mandatory for all students enrolling in the School. The students are encouraged and motivated to participate in the charitable outreach activities of Mata Amritanandamayi Math.
Pharmacy profession demands strict adherence to a set of ethical principles. The vision of Amrita School of Pharmacy, therefore, is to ensure the provision of high quality value - based education with an international focus while maintaining utmost professionalism, integrity and ethics.
As the school marches ahead, it vows by its unwavering commitment to provide education to students from all sections of society regardless of race, caste, religion or economic condition.
Amrita School of Pharmacy is recognised by Pharmacy Council of India (PCI) & All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). The School and the institution are accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) with 'A' Grade.
