2 responses on "Pharm.D "

  1. Major fact with the Pharm D. course :

    Certificate of passing examination.? Every student who has passed the examinations
    for the Pharm.D. (Doctor of Pharmacy) or Pharm.D. (Post Baccalaureate) (Doctor of
    Pharmacy) as the case may be, shall be granted a certificate by the examining
    authority

    This regulation of awarding a Certificate “Doctor of Pharmacy” is major decision by PCI and more or less it will be a matter of dispute in nearby future.
