Bachelor of Pharmacy
A Bachelor of Pharmacy (abbreviated B Pharma) is an undergraduate academic degree in the field of pharmacy. The degree is the basic prerequisite for registration to practice as a pharmacist in many countries and its about understanding the properties and impacts of medicines and developing the skills required to counsel patients about their use. In some countries, it has been superseded by the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) and Master of Pharmacy (MPharma) degrees. In the United States, this degree was granted as the baccalaureate pharmacy degree only at Washington State University, where it has now been superseded by the Pharma degree. The degree previously offered within the US—and still the required degree in Canada—is the Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy.
The Bachelor of Pharmacy degree is popularly known as B-Pharma in India. It is a four-year program with both annual and semester schemes available. In order to be eligible, one must pass with at least 50% marks in 10 + 2 (or an equivqlent examination) with biology/biotechnology as one of the subjects. In some states it is mandatory to give an additional pharmacy entrance examination in order to be eligible for the course. D.Pharm (Diploma of Pharmacy) holders are eligible for admission into B.Pharma (Bachelor of Pharmacy) into the second year directly via Lateral entry in India.
