“Pharmacy is the health profession that links the health science with the chemical science and it is charged with ensuring safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs.” That’s how the Wikipedia defines it. For a student it is a career, an ambition and of a course a learning process.
Pharmacy education in India was initiated by Medical College; Madras in 1860, the purpose was to develop pharmaceutical skills of students of medical degree or diploma course or of that pursuing hospital assistance. From 1860 to 2014 the pharmacy profession shows a tremendous growth in India, it shows that pharmacist is one of the major fraternities of health care system around the world. As a pharmacist, I must say that pharmacy is profession which benefits to the world. But certain area in pharmacy are consistently points the pharmacist as towards negative aspects. Hence it’s a pharmacist’s duty to focus on wrong practices to make a profession as boon for world.[1]
