ABSTRACT: In lieu of the fact that without adequate supervision, the assurance of quality of any system is not possible; clinical pharmacy has emerged as one of the latest and unmapped discipline of pharmacy in the 21st century. The existence of clinical pharmacists in medical rounds could support physicians in optimizing pharmacotherapy. This novel profession in India extends its diversions to good manufacturing practices, procurement/preparation/distribution of medication, reporting ADRs/ ADEs and on the whole to a very promising aspect of patient healthcare service. The state of clinical pharmacy in India is in the transformational state showing serious positive promising changes in the past couple of years. Even hospitals have started distinguishing the importance of clinical pharmacy and have taken initiatives for making it possible although at a budding stage. The clinical pharmacy branch of pharmacy is surely attaining new heights in regard to patient care services which have certainly increased the services and satisfaction to the patients.
