The MAK College of Pharmacy mission is "to produce through innovative teaching and research delivered in a supportive and caring environment, high quality professional graduates committed to lifelong learning". Student care and support is therefore an essential part of our .
The future of pharmacy lies in meeting patients' needs through working in partnership with patients, other health care professionals, the National Health Service, and industry. Pharmacists are the only health care professionals with a unique knowledge of medicines from manufacture to their use in patients. Pharmacy offers a wide range of career options and further detail on these are provided on this site and links to other sites.
We have designed innovative patient focussed undergraduate programmes that address the needs of healthcare professionals. The changing role for pharmacists and other healthcare professionals has allowed the College to develop and refresh a portfolio of postgraduate courses. As a dynamic College we have a commitment to the provision of life-long learning and Continuous Professional Development as exemplified by our 'Skills for MURs' programme which has now attracted many hundreds of practising pharmacists.
Research is extremely important to the College and takes place alongside teaching under the guidance of our Director of Research. The College has already made a significant investment in facilities and equipment and will make further financial commitments to research over the coming years. The College will continue to evolve a strong interdisciplinary approach to research and aims to enhance its' internationally recognised reputation in identified research areas. We currently have a vibrant PhD student group with over thirty candidates currently researching with various staff members across our three areas of biological sciences; chemistry and drug delivery; and clinical and professional practice.

Third and fourth year studies will apply the knowledge obtained in the basic sciences to therapeutic decisions in the care of patients.
Pharmacy practice residencies will provide opportunities for Pharm.D. graduates to obtain in-depth clinical experience, teaching experience in the clinical environment and administrative training. Specialty residencies and fellowships will allow for highly concentrated research and practice experience in specialty areas of pharmacy practice.
Reasons to join Pharmacy -
With the increasing complexities of therapeutic management for chronic illnesses, the practice of pharmacy has changed from traditional compounding and dispensing to expanded roles in clinical and therapeutic settings. Today's pharmacist carries significant responsibilities for managing drug information and therapy, educating and counselling patients, monitoring outcomes, and collaborating with industry in the formulation and clinical testing of new biotechnology products.
Health management and retail pharmacy organizations have developed new arrangements where the pharmacist is the therapeutic consultant in the community, serving as the available front-line contact with the public, and overseeing technicians to improve safe and effective drug use and to simplify delivery and distribution of drugs.
The pharmacist has assumed an increasing role as a therapeutic consultant in hospitals, outpatient clinics and home health care settings. Pharmacists are called upon to work with other health care professionals in the therapeutic management of chronic illness, adjusting drug doses, counselling patients, identifying drug interactions, and monitoring and managing therapeutic outcomes.
Good Manufacturing Practices encourage pharmacists to be on staff for new drug development and to oversee such functions as formulation, batch testing and sterility within the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Pharmacists are also involved in clinical trial development and monitoring and providing medical information. A major future direction in drug development is pharmacogenomics, the development of therapeutic regimens adapted to individual genetic makeup in order to maximize therapeutic efficacy and minimize toxicity.
MAK College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences was established to serve the needs of the citizens of the State of Andhra Pradesh, the nation and the global community. As part of a research-intensive university, the College has a three part mission of education, research and service.

Facilities - Building Program
Pharmacy Building - West
After two busy years of construction, the MAK College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences proudly opened its new doors in June 2011. Built as the first phase of development in the master plan for future construction south of the existing School of Medicine buildings, the pharmaceutical sciences building provides the facilities and space necessary to support MAK College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, and related research.
The space consists of approximately 76,150 net assignable square feet (ASF) in several major program elements. The space types include:
- Wet research laboratory space
- Dry research laboratory space
- Shared support laboratory space, including analytical laboratories
- Faculty offices and meeting spaces
- Administrative offices
The building consists of four floors. The ground level is home to five lecture-style classrooms, two of which seat 60 students each, and all of which are equipped with state of the art AV. In addition, one classroom features 3D projection capability, student-run and operated podcasting (exclusively for classroom use), and a capacity for teleconferencing. The ground level is also home to a clinical simulation lab with four point-of-care patient rooms, along with meeting spaces and administrative offices. The second, third and fourth floors contain laboratories, meeting spaces and faculty and staff offices, the layout of each being a mirror image of the others. The different types of research laboratories are distributed throughout the three research floors to promote the interaction of the research scientists. Upon entrance to the third floor, one becomes quickly aware that something unique exists here: the Protein Data Bank (PDB), administered by the nonprofit Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics. The PDB provides an essential library of protein and nucleic acid structures and supports research worldwide. The building's basement houses the Health Sciences Education Center, a portion of which was funded by the MAK family. It consists of a 260-seat auditorium with state of the art AV; three break-out rooms, each of which seats 50; and a lovely lobby and patio area. In addition to the Health Sciences Education Centre, the basement also contains laboratory space which houses a NMR magnetic facility, a proteomics laboratory and a mass spec laboratory. All three laboratories are used by the MAK College of Pharmacy.
