School of Pharmacy

Home / School of Pharmacy

School of Pharmacy: The School of Pharmacy, a premier School of ITM University Gwalior (MP), was established in 2012 offering quality education and research in Pharmaceutical Science. School of Pharmacy is committed to providing an accredited pharmacy degree that incorporates the best professional experience and learning environment with the highest standards of academic excellence, promoting high levels of student achievement. The syllabus remains in total sync with the regulations of the Pharmacy Council of India.

For the overall development of our students, we have incorporated the Activity-Based Continuous Assessment, where the student made to participate in the various individual of group activities in each subject and submit the assignment to the faculty. Several such activities on being evaluated continuously add up to their progressive evaluation mark incorporated into their grade improvement factors.

Students in the Laboratory

Even though the degree of freedom to modify the syllabus as proposed by the Pharmacy Council, the school is ever into enhancing the program in the school.

The first incorporation was the ABCA, with due BOS approval was greatly welcomed and accepted by our students. This concept has kept our students ever on their toes on continuous self-learning mode.

This time, keeping in view of the all-round development of the students, an attempt is to be made to develop the sensitive faculty of the students with an abundance of enthusiasm and energy. Thus, attempting to establish Emotional Quotient (EQ) in each student. It was therefore decided to include a Non-University Exam- credit Course of Fine Arts/Humanities, of the choice of students of First year and Second year.

The pandemic has forced us to rethink on modalities and options available to expose our students to a wide range of educational materials related to Pharmacy, available online on various platforms as Coursera, MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses), Swayam, Udmey, e- Pathshala, Harvard Online Courses, In-House courses, etc. The matter was discussed in detail to append online courses identified to be equivalent or enhance the already offered subjects in their syllabus that would enhance their employability at the end of their course. Thus, the students of III year and Final Year will have to take online courses as elective subjects bouquet, in each semester, related to Pharmacy, Medical Sciences, and Health industries limited to 4 credits for two years, and submit a Certificate as proof.

In a major thrust to “Study from Home” our school has been continuously in touch without students in conducting regular classes on platforms like Zoom, and Goto Meeting. On the 20th of July the university commissioned a personalized seamless Webinar platform into our Learning Management System, now aptly christened “TATVA”. This has greatly benefited our students as well as faculty in dissipating information and conducting Webinars. The school is involved now in providing quality Online laboratory experience, which is an integral part of pharmacy to our students.

Teaching Mode:
