“The Pharmacist of Future”
Clinical Pharmacy services have proved and are providing their importance in healthcare systems of the world towards better healthcare, especially in western countries. Very few professional Clinical Pharmacy services are being provided in India. Hence, the need of a patient oriented approach in Pharmacy curriculum was felt by the Pharmacy Council of India (PCI) and in view of that the Union Ministry of Health and Pharmacy Council of India (PCI) have introduced a six year Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D) course. It provides intensive training in pharmacy practice and clinical pharmacy services.

The Pharm. D programme gives a global edge to the students and enables the pharmacist to advise, consult, and help doctors in dispensing medicines to patients. It is a six year training based course wherein a student is exposed to actual pharmacy practice or clnical pharmacy services in hospital settings.

SGRRITS is a pioneer in starting Pharm.D (Doctor of Pharmacy) and Pharm.D (Post Baccalaureate) course in the state of Uttarakhand.

The image of a healthy person today does not necessarily include a deep, dark tan. Research has linked exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays to skin cancer, premature wrinkles, and other skin problems like dull & lifeless skin. While protective clothing such as hats, pants, and long sleeve shirts are the most effective blocks against these damaging rays, sun-screen products  provide remarkable protection for the skin.
