As the Indian economy has grown in recent years, there has been a rapid expansion in the productivity and research in Indian pharmaceutical industry, justifying the need of quality pharmaceutical education. Bachelor of Pharmacy (B. Pharm.) is one of the best Programmes to pursue after 12th if you are interested in the paramedical field. NSHM being one of the most prominent B.Pharm. colleges in Kolkata, performs the crucial task of transforming scientific knowledge to technical skills through excellent laboratory facilities and industrial training.
Students are trained by highly qualified faculty members and have access to laboratories that have been designed to match the facilities available at pharmaceutical sciences and analytical testing laboratories of GMP certified pharmaceutical companies and research institutes. Individual labs for Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Medicinal Chemistry, Engineering Drawing, Physical Pharmaceutics, Biopharmaceutics, Pharmaceutical Technology, Industrial Pharmacy, Pharmacognosy, Pharmaceutical Microbiology and Biotechnology, and Physiology and Pharmacology are housed in the campus.
As Pharma industry is continuously evolving, there is lack of skilled professionals in this field. Pharmacy being one of the fastest-growing industries in healthcare sector in India, the career prospects and job opportunities seems to be very impressive. After completing the degree, students can work in industries like:
molecular levels of the chemical process associated with living cells, biochemical facts and the principles to understand metabolism of nutrient molecules in physiological and pathological conditions, and emphasis on genetic organization of mammalian genome and hetero & autocatalytic functions of DNA
application of instrumental methods in qualitative and quantitative analysis of drugs, principles and instrumentation of spectroscopic and chromatographic technique, and emphasis on theoretical and practical knowledge on modern analytical instruments that are used for drug testing.
fundamental knowledge on the structure, chemistry and therapeutic value of drugs, structure-activity relationships of drugs, importance of physicochemical properties and metabolism of drugs, chemical synthesis of important drugs under each class, modern techniques of rational drug design like quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR), Prodrug concept, combinatorial chemistry and Computer aided drug design (CADD), emphasis on the chemistry, mechanism of action, metabolism, adverse effects, Structure Activity Relationships (SAR), therapeutic uses and synthesis of important drugs.
fundamentals of analytical chemistry and principles of electrochemical analysis of drugs
monographs of inorganic drugs and pharmaceuticals
classification and nomenclature of simple organic compounds, structural isomerism, intermediates forming in reactions, important physical properties, reactions and methods of preparation of these compounds, mechanisms and orientation of reactions, Chemistry of fats and oils, stereo-chemical aspects of organic compounds and organic reactions, important named reactions, chemistry of important hetero cyclic compounds, and emphasis on medicinal and other uses of organic compounds.
The subject involves the fundamentals of Pharmacognosy like scope, classification of crude drugs, their identification and evaluation, phytochemicals present in them and their medicinal properties. The main purpose of subject is to impart the students the knowledge of how the secondary metabolites are produced in the crude drugs, how to isolate and identify and produce them industrially. Also this subject involves the study of producing the plants and Phytochemicals through plant tissue culture, drug interactions and basic principles of traditional system of medicine.
basic understanding of herbal drug industry, the quality of raw material, guidelines for quality of herbal drugs, herbal cosmetics, natural sweeteners, nutraceutical etc. The subject also emphasizes on Good manufacturing Practices (GMP), patenting and regulatory issues of herbal drugs
drug distribution, drug information, and therapeutic drug monitoring for improved patient care, community pharmacy, dispensing of drugs, responding to minor ailments by providing suitable safe medication, patient counselling for improved patient care in the community set up.
all categories of microorganisims especially for the production of alchol antibiotics, vaccines, vitamins enzymes etc.
scientific applications of biotechnology in the field of genetic engineering, medicine and fermentation technology, new biological revolutions in diagnosis, prevention and cure of diseases, new and cheaper pharmaceutical drugs, transgenic crops and animals, and the future promises.
applications of Biostatics in Pharmacy, Descriptive statistics, Graphics, Correlation, Regression, logistic regression Probability theory, Sampling technique, Parametric tests, Non Parametric tests, ANOVA, Introduction to Design of Experiments, Phases of Clinical trials and Observational and Experimental studies, SPSS, R and MINITAB statistical software’s, analyzing the statistical data
understanding of marketing concepts and techniques, and their applications in the pharmaceutical industry.
Database design and development, Database Management system, DBMS/RDBMS, computer application in clinical studies, and use of medical databases
environmental system, status of its inherent or induced changes on organisms, physical and biological characters of the environment, social and cultural factors, and the impact of man on environment
