Scope of D. Pharmacy
Due to the continuous growth in the healthcare sector and the increasing focus on trained professionals like Hospital pharmacist, Clinical Pharmacist, Retail/Wholesale Pharmacists, the demand of highly trained manpower is rising exponentially. This facts hint at a need for more Diploma courses in Pharmacy especially in Nashik where the existing courses and seats available are very few as compared to the need. In Maharashtra, there are several industrial hubs set up by Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation. These MIDC areas in Mumbai, Thane, Aurangabad, Pune and Nashik have numerous small, medium and large scale pharmaceutical industries. Indian pharma companies like Cipla, Dr. Reddy’s, Piramal Lifesciences, Reliance, Alkem, Indoco, Matrix, Bluecross etc have plants in Maharashtra as also multinational pharma giants like Pfizer, GSK, and Novartis to name a few. It follows that there is an enormous need for pharmacy diploma holders along with graduates and post graduates to sustain these pharmaceutical companies. Additionally Diploma Pharmacy holders also having opportunity to work as laboratory technicians in academic institutions.
