My knowledge of pharma education

After completing my Bachelor of Science education, I started working in medical domain as medical representative. I was meeting doctors and explaining about pharma products. During my discussion I confronted many medical terminologies. I was faced with a piquant situation; I am here in front of the doctor, I am required to inform why this drug and how the drug is useful in a particular health issues. Of course I had extensive training before starting working in the field. The situation on the field right in front of a medical expert is entirely different. I decided that I must upgrade my knowledge of medicine. The desire led me to new knowledge that to study the details of medicine and related terminologies, I must study other related, important subjects. Human physiology, pharmacology, bio chemistry are the subjects which are required to be studied. Now I had many choices, the most common activity is self-study but I was doubtful the extent of knowledge I can gather. Furthermore, my self-learning will not be in a structured way. I happen to meet principal of a pharmacy college. I discussed with gym on my predicament. He listened patiently and suggested me to join Diploma course. He further added that hat the diploma course will help me open new windows into the world of pharmacy. Diploma course is the stepping stone into other exciting educational options. True to his words, I found out that Diploma is the first step to enter into exciting world of pharmacy education. Subjects like human physiology, pharmacology, bio chemistry along with practical work outs, enables a satisfying experience.

Different pharmacy degrees in nut-shell.

Pharma education starts with the basic diploma certificate. Diploma is the first step into the world of pharmacy course. The diploma course is usually for 2-3 years. The duration varied from one country to another. To get admission into diploma course the student must have completed 10+2 years of basic education. Once the student successfully completes diploma course then the option to get admission into Bachelor course opens. Bachelor of pharmacy course is very exhaustive. The course are built in such a way that the student is completely enriched in the knowledge. Usually the duration of course varies from 4-5 years. The variation of duration is again from country to country but the centre theme of education remains the same. The next option for the student is Master in pharmacy course. As the name suggests a student will take up his particular subject as the core study. The student is propelled towards the top position in the hierarchy of pharma achievers. Student gains recognition and is much south after in pharma sector. A student can further achieve pinnace of pharma education by going in for doctorate degree. Student is now second to none in pharmacy knowledge. I am sure you would like to see your child in that position.

Benefits of pharmacy diploma to me.

As I mentioned in this blog, I wanted to gain more knowledge in order to effectively perform my official duties. I wanted to learn medical terminologies with their actual meaning. I knew I cannot learn as much as practical medical practitioner but I wanted to convey the message effectively. Diploma in pharmacy course helped me achieve this. I could talk to doctors, paramedical staff in concise medical terminologies. I am not bluffing but the education propelled me into a league of achievers in my company. I gained lot of recognition as a successful medical representative. Company used to ask me in open meetings about my opinion on the marketing achievement prospects of a new launch. If I say positive, which usually is the fact, my indicated target numbers would become the benchmark for other team members to achieve. When I later graduated from pharma marketing to software marketing for health care domain the benefits of pharmacy diploma continued. I am able to connect with health care owners on the features of hospital software in an appropriate language. I can also connect with staff on the usage of the software as per the work flow of the health care centre. I know majority of pharmacy drug molecules available in the market. I have basic knowledge of the benefits of the drug. I explain on the treatment pattern after prescribed by a medical practitioner. Overall I thank my college, my professors for teaching me and equipping me with the right knowledge.
