Pharmacy is an integral part of the healthcare system worldwide, ensuring the provision of quality medical services to patients.

Pharmacists are amongst the third largest healthcare professionals in the world, and the pharmacy profession has been evolving steadily over the last decade in India due to tremendous changes in its practice, emerging trends, and professional approach. There is an increase in the demand for pharmacists due to advancements in science and technology, industrialization, and an increase in patient needs. Today, pharmacists have expanded their role from dispensing to pharmaceutical care by maximizing the benefits of medications and providing relief to patients.

Recognizing the importance of the pharmacy profession and the increasing demand for pharmacists, Amity Institute of Pharmacy (AIP), Lucknow Campus, was founded in 2007 to provide B. Pharm, M. Pharm. in Pharmaceutics, Pharmacology, Drug Regulatory Affairs, and PhD programs, with a focus on training students in a wide range of aspects of the drug and pharmaceutical industries, research and development, academic, and the healthcare system, while keeping in mind the ever changing global environment.The AIP’s courses are approved by the Pharmacy Council of India and are a constituent unit of NAAC accredited (A grade) Amity University, Uttar Pradesh.
