Scope of Pharmacy
With rising awareness amongst the general public, the health care industry is in for a great boom in the near future. The Pharmaceutical industry is recession free and there is always a great demand for competent pharmacy professionals. Pharmacists play a major role in Health Care, Clinical Research and Diagnostics. Implementation of GATT in January 2005 has widened the scope for pharmacists. On the way to becoming self-reliant and a technologically advanced industry, pharmaceutical research has secured a tremendous impetus in recent years. At the same time, India is fast emerging as a preferred hub for Clinical Trials and Research. This in turn has opened a virtual floodgate of opportunities for the young budding pharmacists.
