Hanagal Shri Kumareshwar College of Pharmacy, Bagalkot, was established in 1992 and in the year 2008 we have initiated Pharm D programme. The college is affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka, Bengaluru and approved by Pharmacy Council of India, New Delhi. The institution offers “Doctor of Pharmacy” (Pharm D).
It is an advanced degree that has became the standard of practice for graduates of Pharmacy in the present scenario. Due to the changes in health care system in today's society and the increasing need for counseling and medication maintenance, pharmacists have taken a larger role in health care. The new course would be of immense help to the Indian pharmacists going abroad to get employment as community pharmacists.
This experience will enable the pharmacist to advice, & help doctors in prescribing medicines to patients and play a role that is based on enriched knowledge.
It provides the pharmacist with a role at par with doctors. A large number of Pharmaceutical companies are opting for clinical trials. Pharmacists have mostly been involved in the industrial aspect of health care. But now with the introduction of Pharm D, we expect more clinical trials taking place & a forthcoming change that will strengthen the role of the pharmacist in the health care system very soon. Our faculty would incorporate skills and knowledge into students for taking on new roles focusing on Medication management. The college has well trained and experienced faculty members, well equipped & state of the art laboratories, a library which has considerable collection of books, periodicals and audiovisual facility. Recently the college got a feather in its cap by getting approval as a Research centre for pursuing Doctor of Philosophy study by Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bengaluru, Karnataka.
