B Pharm-Overview

Post-independence, pharmacy education in India has undergone tremendous changes to meet the requirements of industry and the community at large. The degree program (B Pharm) is developed to address all other demands of the profession of pharmacy. However, B Pharm education today is facing the challenge of meeting the changing needs the of industry. The four-year B Pharm course offered by Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka, Bangalore, is prepared considering the needs of the industry, which gives more impetus for skill development. Thus, BPharm graduates can do the roles like Industrial Pharmacist (Manufacturing, Packaging, Quality Control, and Quality Assurance), Hospital and Community Pharmacist (Dispensing of Medicines and Counselling of patients), Sales and Distribution executive (Detailing to Doctors and Bulk Distribution of Medicines), Academic Pharmacist (Training Diploma in Pharmacy Students). With the higher qualification, M Pharm, a person could land jobs in the pharma industry in several niche areas, including research, regulatory affairs, new formulation development, marketing, and administration. With experience, an aspirant can move up the ladder to occupy senior positions in pharmaceutical companies getting hefty pay and perks.

In 1914, BLDEA took over the New English School, a school run by Basel Mission, Germany. About 83 students were studying in the school then. BLDEA later renamed it as Siddeshwara Secondary Education School and thus began journey in the field of education.

As the number of students grew, Dr. P. G. Halakatti felt it necessary that the school have a new building. Knowing the perseverance of Dr. P. G. Halakatti and recognizing the need for the school’s development, the State Government granted six acres of land to the Association. Very soon, BLDEA laid the foundation for its own school building.

Working days in each semester

Each semester shall consist of not less than 100 working days. The odd semesters shall be conducted from the month of June/July to November/December and the even semesters shall be conducted from December/January to May/June in every calendar year.

Attendance and Progress

A candidate is required to put in at least 80% attendance in individual courses considering theory and practical separately. The candidate shall complete the prescribed course satisfactorily to be eligible to appear for the respective examinations.

Program/Course Credit Structure

As per the philosophy of Credit Based Semester System, certain quantum of academic work, viz. theory classes, tutorial hours, practical classes, etc. are measured in terms of credits. On satisfactory completion of the courses, a candidate earns credits. The amount of credit associated with a course is dependent upon the number of hours of instruction per week in that course. Similarly, the credit associated with any of the other academic, co/extra-curricular activities is dependent upon the quantum of work expected to be put in for each of these activities per week.

Credit Assignments

Theory and Laboratory courses

Courses are broadly classified as Theory and Practical. Theory courses consist of lecture (L) and /or tutorial (T) hours, and Practical (P) courses consist of hours spent in the laboratory. Credits (C) for a course is dependent on the number of hours of instruction per week in that course, and is obtained by using a multiplier of one (1) for lecture and tutorial hours, and a multiplier of half (1/2) for practical (laboratory) hours. Thus, for example, a theory course having three lectures and one tutorial per week throughout the semester carries a credit of 4. Similarly, a practical having four laboratory hours per week throughout semester carries a credit of 2.

Minimum credit requirements

The minimum credit points required for award of a B. Pharm. degree is 208. These credits are divided into Theory courses, Tutorials, Practical, Practice School and Project over the duration of eight semesters. The credits are distributed semester- wise as shown in Table IX.
