Specialisations

pharmacy is a place where drugs are sold and Pharmacy is practiced. It is also called a drug-store or a  chemist's in certain parts of the world. A pharmacy is generally called a medical store  in India, and both prescription drugs & over the counter drugs are sold here. A drug store attached to a hospital is called a dispensary and only prescription drugs are distributed here.

A pharmacist is also known as apothecary or chemist, all denoting the profession of expertise in dealing with drugs. Being in search for chemical and herbal ingredients, the Pharmaceutics is regarded as the precursor of chemistry and pharmacology.

The crux of Pharmacy constitutes drug preparation, dispensation and review, along with clinical health services (diagnostic, therapeutic, rehabilitative, preventive & palliative). Pharmacy aims at the effective, safe and affordable use of drugs. Pharmacists are experts in drug therapy and they try to optimize the use of drugs for the benefit of patients.

GPAT (Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test) conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA) is an entrance exam for M.Pharm programmes in India.

 

The field of pharmacy can be divided into the following categories, generally:

Pharmaceutics: A branch that deals with drug development and production.

Medicinal Chemistry: It is the chemistry discipline concerned with the design, development and synthesis of pharmaceutical drugs.

Pharmacy Practice:It is the discipline of pharmacy which involves developing the professional roles of pharmacists.

The effect of medicines derived from natural sources, to be specific. The drug can be man-made, natural or endogenous (from within the body) molecule that exerts a biochemical or physiological effect on the applied medium.

Pharmacoinformatics:  It is considered another new discipline, for systematic drug discovery and development with efficiency and safety. Drug discovery and development requires the integration of multiple scientific and technological disciplines. These include chemistry, biology, pharmacology, pharmaceutical technology and extensive use of information technology.

Pharmacodynamics:The study of the cellular and molecular interactions of drugs with their receptors. Simply, "What the drug does to the body".

Pharmacokinetics:The study of the factors that control the concentration of drug at various sites in the body. Simply, "What the body does to the drug".

Pharmaceutical toxicology: is the study of the harmful or toxic effects of drugs.

Pharmacogenomics:The effect of genes on a person’s response to drugs is the subject matter of Pharmacogenomics. Here the principles of pharmacology (science of drugs) and genomics (study of genes and their functions) are combined to develop effective and safe medications for a person’s genetic makeup.

Pharmaceutical chemistry:the study of drug design to optimize pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, and synthesis of new drug molecules (Medicinal Chemistry).
