Master of Pharmacy (M Pharm) is a post-graduate Academic degree in the field of pharmacy. Since pharmaceutical industry is growing at a rapid pace, there is always great demand for candidates with higher education in the field of pharmacy.
M Pharm programme in India is offered as a post graduate course after completion of B Pharm degree. The M Pharm course is usually of two years duration with different specializations. The curriculum focuses on specialization like Pharmaceutics, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmacology, Pharmacy Practice etc.
M.Pharm - The Course.
The college is offering M.Pharm in Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmaceutics and Pharmacology. The PG students are provided with advanced research and lab facilities. The PG students are guided by well qualified and experienced Faculty Members.
Career and Higher Studies after M.Pharm
The candidates can opt their job in areas of Formulation, Research & Development, Analytical Pharmacist, Production Officer, Drugs Inspector(India),Regulatory Including Intellectual Property Rights Manager, Pharmaceutical testing and management and Academician. The post graduates have job openings in Government as well as private sector in India and abroad. After completing M.Pharm program, the aspirants can go for Ph.D and other higher studies
