Dear Eswar, You have given really good news. The long wait for the students who wanted to go for PharmD seems to be over. But why is it so that the admissions are not centralized, the private colleges may demand heavy fees & even donations. I think that there should be some proper channelization for the admission to this course.

I have heard that the KIMS institute of Bangalore also offers Pharm.D...Is it true?

Your doubt is half-way correct.
Actually Visveswarapura Inst. of Pharm. Sciences (VIPS), Bangalore is offering Pharm.D. This college is a body of KIMS established under the same management.
For details visit www.vips.edu.in and http://www.kimsbangalore.edu.in/vsabout.html

For other colleges offering Pharm D plz visit www.pharmainfo.net/pharmacyschools

It is a good news that Pharm D programme is started in Andhra Pradesh.
Manipal College of Pharmaceutical Sciences have already started Pharm D and Pharm D Post Baccalaureat Programmes from September 2008.
But what i was told by one of my colleagues that in Andhra Pradesh, the advertorial in newspaper misguides the students by highlighting Pharm D programme that gives one a degree of a "Doctor" which is highly misleading. I personally haven't seen the advertisement so i may be wrong. Please correct me if i am wrong.

Even i have the same doubt as you have..Many of my friends have said me that the Pharm.D student would be tagged with the degree 'doctor'... But at the same time, I have heard the reverse from many... Iam really confused for the same reason...

Yes, you have heard it correctly that you can write "Dr" before your name if you have a PharmD degree; however, for a true pharmacist, it must not matter. What must matter is that you must have the competency to practice clinical pharmacy, and take the profession ahead. Only if you have passion, and commitment for the profession of pharmacy, you should enter this profession; obviously not for having "Dr" as prefix!
Eswar GsnkRao's picture

I came to know that Pharm.D. (Doctor of Pharmacy) persons will get the honour "Dr." and it is not equivalent to the Ph.D. (Doctorate of Philosophy).
Pharm.D honour is just like the M.B.B.S honour.
As you all are specific about that factor, Myself once again enquire about that and give U exact clarification.
Thanks for your comment.

Hello Anil, With post baccalaureate PharmD, you are eligible to appear NAPLEX, and become a registered pharmacist in the US subsequently if you cleared the exam. You should join PharmD only if your area of interest is clinical PRACTICE of Pharmacy, and you are passionate about it. If you are research oriented, you should consider MPharm. I hope this answers your question. Tapan
