PHARM-D Overview

  • Pharmacists apply their understanding of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology to comprehend biochemical mechanisms of drug action, pharmacological applications, therapeutic roles, side effects, possible drug interactions, and monitoring variables.
  • Pharmacy has been an emerging field in Pakistan. It would not be wrong to say that it is an emerging field in medical sciences all around the world.
  • While developed countries like the USA, Australia, and the UK have already achieved a lot in this field, many other countries are also advancing at a great pace to catch up to them.
  • This is because pharmacists have proved that they are an essential part of our healthcare system. Since the inception of this profession in modern days, the incidences of any ADRs or medication relation accidents have been reduced significantly.
