Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm)

FPH009
S1 C0704

Overview

Objective

  • To produce fully trained pharmacists with a deep knowledge and understanding of the formulations, manufacture and evaluation of dosage forms
  • To encourage independent thought in a career in pharmacy 
  • To offer a multidisciplinary program that blends science, technology, and human relationships in a unique fashion 
  • To help students think critically and acquire practical skills for a smooth transition from academia to a real life work environment. The presence of other faculties of applied sciences of the University will facilitate the students to experience more than the conventional curriculum 

Highlights

  • Proctoral System

    Under the Proctoral System, every student is assigned a faculty member as a Proctor or a mentor. 

    These mentors offer guidance, support and encouragement to students, helping them as they progress along their academic journey. From the choice of electives to their academic performance, from attendance to meeting their credit requirements, students can approach these mentors with any and every query. 

    Proctors also interact with parents/​guardians and keep them updated on the progress of students.

    To ensure that they reap the benefits of the Proctoral System, students are advised to be in regular contact with their Proctors. 

  • Innovation Centre

    At the Innovation Centre, students team up with faculty members to bring their innovative ideas to life. 

    Ideas are assessed based on their relevance to — and impact on — society. These are then translated into working projects that are entered in national and international competitions, and for registration as patents. 

  • Industry Visit

    Students can opt for an internship in an industry, a business or research organisation during this module. Alternately, students can undertake a mini project that requires self-directed study to be pursued with an affiliated faculty member. It is also necessary for the student to submit a report and make a presentation to the members of the panel constituted by the HoD for assessment.

  • Partner Facilities

    The Ramaiah Group was established in 1962 with a teaching hospital for medical students founded in 1985. This hospital caters to various income levels with a wide range of casualties. Students from FPH get exposure to live cases training them for the future.

Our program is part of a 28-year old pioneering institution in the Pharmaceutical Sciences in the private sector in India. Our program

  • Uses application-based learning
  • Offers advanced training in operations, management, foreign languages, information technology and entrepreneurial skills 
  • Includes internship, training and placement support with various worldwide universities and industries
  • Incorporates expert guest lectures from various institutions and industries
