The University level pharmaceutical education in India made its beginning in 1932 when the first degree course B.Pharm was started at the Banaras Hindu University by late Prof. M. L. Schroff. The course was set on the pattern of the B.Pharm course of London University. During the 1940s and 50s the Punjab University(1944), L. M. College of Pharmacy, affiliated by Mumbai University (1947), Andhra University (1951) and Sagar University started degree level education. The Pharmacy curriculum then continues with Industrial orientation by updating from time to time which includes introductions of new courses like biotechnology, computer application in pharmacy, clinical pharmacy and clinical pharmacology in the undergraduate course.

In our day-to-day life pharmacists play an important role, as they are very much into research and manufacture of drugs. Thus pharmacy is closely associated with scientific study.

Pharmacy as a career option has always been in demand. India being a huge nation of about a billion populations, diseases both minor and major has been a curse upon the weak and the poor. In the previous centuries and almost till the middle of the 20th century killer diseases such as acute respiratory infections, diarrhea, depression, tuberculosis, measles, anemia etc have been affecting thousands every year. With the advancements in medical science most of these diseases have been brought under control, with the help of high powerful antibiotics and other life saving drugs. This is where pharmacy steps in to fill the void.
