The Pharm.D. professional program is only one step, albeit a required one, in the process of becoming a registered pharmacist. The other steps include preparation for college study, admission to college, completion of the Pre-Pharmacy requirements, and after completion of the Pharm.D.
Any one can join this program with minimum qualification of 10+2 (Science – Biology or Mathematics). PCI will continue its B.Pharm as well as M.Pharm (Pharmacy Practice) program as such in future. B.Pharm and M.Pharm passed candidates can also do Pharm.D. by undergoing 6 year course framed by PCI which will mainly concentrate on clinical exposure and Pharmacy Practice.
