Prin. K.M.Kundnani College of Pharmacy, established in 1971, by Hyderabad Sindh National Collegiate Board, is one of the leading Pharmacy Colleges in India. At KMK we strive to attain excellence by innovation. This is achieved by working on academics in a dedicated manner as well as encouraging sports and cultural activities to create a dynamic educational environment.
During the last decade, Pharma industry underwent a complete transformation due to liberalisation, globalisation, emerging GATT era and then India becoming a member of WTO coupled with major shift in Govt’s economic policy. All these events led to severe competition, demand of highquality standards of drugs and pharmaceuticals, introduction of new generation of drugs and emerging biotechnological methods for the production of extremely efficacious drugs.
Increased understanding of etiology of diseases due to advances in biology, immunology and microbiology have lead to the development of ultra-sensitive and rapid diagnostic aids and tools. The availability of sophicated biomedical equipments and instruments for diagnosis and new technologies and devices for the effective treatment of diseases has accelerated healthcare. Such rapid advances demand greater responsibility from pharmacists working in hospitals and community.
In this era of rapid changes, pharmacy educational institutions, Universities, Govt. regulatory bodies (AICTE, PCI and DTE of Maharashtra) in tandem with the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry must analyse and understand the situation and work together with newer vision and goals for creating state-of-the-art of pharmacy education in India. This would require a well-designed curriculum and syllabus, resource identification, faculty development and student selection.
