Nod to MPharm at North Bengal University
The Pharmacy Council of India (PCI) has approved the post graduate course in pharmacy at the North Bengal University and also approved more number of seats than what the varsity had allotted for students pursuing Master of Pharmacy (MPharm).
The two year course was introduced in the department of pharmaceutical technology of the NBU with 18 seats last year. Varsity sources said that the PCI granted had 30 seats for the course considering the infrastructure and teaching method of the varsity.
Students with a BPharm degree are eligible to apply for M.Pharm.
“It is a multi-dimensional course as on one hand, it offers a professional degree while on the other hand, one can study higher levels of a non-conventional science stream. It is good that soon after we have introduced the course, we could get approval from the PCI, that too with more seats,” said Pranab Ghosh, professor and the head of the department of pharmaceutical technology at the NBU.
The varsity has also introduced research facilities in the field, said sources.
