Bachelor In Pharmacy (Honours)

Pharmacists are the researchers, developers, producers, people who are trusted to give advice on drugs to all health professionals and persons who market drugs. The pharmaceutical industry is the most heavily regulated of all industries. This profession and this industry is the most heavily reliant on a code of ethics in its everyday practice. Pharmacists dispense prescription drug products and provide patient information services to consumers in hospitals, nursing homes, retail pharmacy departments and home care settings. Pharmacists consult directly with patients, or with their caregivers, explaining the proper use and storage of drug products and providing information on contraindications of drugs.
