Doctor of Pharmacy provides a broad exposure to students in health care sector. Pharmacovigilance (ADR Detection and reporting), clinical research, clinical pharmacy, medical writing are various fields which are governed by clinical pharmacists. With an incredible development of the health care services/ pharmaceutical industries, the demand for trained pharmacy professionals is increasing. Rising elderly population, chronic illnesses, and insurance cover are some additional contributing factors. Pharmacists are becoming more actively engaged in drug therapy, decision-making and pharmaceutical care, meeting the rising demand of trained pharmacy professionals. Pharmacy practice is a rewarding career in today’s expanding health care setting. Department of pharmacy practice was established at SCES’s Indira College of Pharmacy, Pune in 2016 with the introduction of Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm. D.) program, first time in private sector of Maharashtra. The department provides experiential training to Pharm. D. students to understand and undertake activities such as drug information, patient counseling, medication history interview, assessment of drug interaction, identify and resolve drug related problems, pharmacovigilance, periodic safety update report (PSUR), Clinical Research, health screening program, community outreach program, etc. This training helps students to become leader in today's dynamic healthcare environment by catering to the needs of the clinicians and patients and thus provides best pharmaceutical care to diseased patients.
"I have been a part of Indira College of Pharmacy from 2013-2017 as a bachelor of pharmacy student. Apart from the excellent staff and research carried out at the college, there are many other extra-curricular activities and experiences to learn from. I will always cherish the beautiful memories with the friends I made and the time spent during the four years journey at ICP. At ICP, you don't feel you are away from home, and I am glad to be a part of such a happy and career-oriented family. Thank you.
Being the first batch of the college, I was always a bit skeptical regarding the teaching processes and overall environment, as we were about to give 5 years of our lives without any guidance of the seniors. But as it turned out, these 5 years were the most amazing academic years of my life. The efforts taken by the faculty for providing a convenient educational experience along with extra-curricular activities was truly immeasurable. They also strived to provide other opportunities to the students by arranging various guest lectures, workshops, and competitions which are really necessary for Architectural learning. I am very thankful to IGI and ICAD to help me chase my dreams and take the first step towards my career.
I am Dina Abdul Kareem from final year B-pharmacy. I am from Iraq and it was difficult for me to leave my home. But, when I came to ICP I got a good social environment and faculty are very friendly. They motivate the students when they fall down. The infrastructure is excellent. Hostel provides home feeling. Overall, it’s a good college to start your pharmacy career to become a successful person.
