Welcome to VDF School of Pharmacy! We aim to increase knowledge about drugs and medicines through high quality teaching and research and thereby improve the quality of life through best use of medicines. Pharmacy has been inseparable from mankind’s history since it fulfils one of our most basic needs. As man made his way through remote times or places, he reached out, often blindly, towards the resources of nature for cures and remedies of diseases and in the process gradually developed pharmaceutical theories, techniques and implements. The person supplying this essential service is known as a Pharmacist in modern times though he has been designated in a variety of ways throughout the ages. Pharmacy is a profession concerned with an applied science of preparing from natural and synthetic sources suitable and convenient materials for distribution and use in the treatment and prevention of diseases.
It embraces knowledge of the identification, selection, pharmacological action, preservation, combination, analysis and standardization of medicines and their proper and safe distribution and use.
