Job prospects in the US after PharmD from India

Hello Students,
                    The PharmD degree in India does not train you adequately to become a clinical pharmacist in the United States. Students here receive very detailed clinical/hospital pharmacy training which is just not available and/or provided in India. The road towards eventually becoming a licensed US clinical pharmacist is a long and arduous one and is also likely only if you have US citizenship or permanent residency. Job prospects for US pharmacists right now are bleak as there are many private schools that have sprung up in the US which offer PharmD degrees. Also many Indian pharmacists who have eventually obtained pharmacist licenses are now facing the prospect of going back to India after their 6 year final H1B visa expiry since it is becoming very difficult for companies to file for a green card for such individuals. If you are thinking of coming and settling permanently in the US your best bet may be to pursue a graduate degree such as a PhD where there is still some employment demand. Overall employment demand for qualified foreign individuals is at an all time low here.

Please let your friends know this before you send me repeated queries as I do not have the time to respond to the same questions over and over again.Thank you very much, Dr. Rajesh Balkrishnan

Telangana, Andhra Pradesh stand sought on PharmD Tuition fee

Hyderabad: The Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday sought to know the stand of the governments of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on the plea challenging the action of the management of private colleges in demanding payment of tuition fee of about Rs 92,500 each for sixth year (internship) for Pharma D course.
While dealing with the plea by K. Mallesh and several other students of Pharma D course, Justice Nooty Ramamohana Rao directed both the governments to file their affidavits on the averments of the plea within four weeks.
The judge directed the college managements to not insist on payment of fee from the petitioner students and to allow them for viva exam.
The petitioners submitted that collection of tuition fees for the sixth year course (internship period) was not permissible in accordance with the proceedings issued by the AP State Council for Higher Education on January 28, 2014.
They said that as many as 350 students of sixth year Pharma D course were getting affected by the decision of college managements of not permitting them to attend the viva exam to complete the course.

Pharmacy colleges in Kerala flouting rules in admitting students for Pharm D course

Peethaambaran Kunnathoor, Chennai
Monday, June 16, 2014, 08:00 Hrs  [IST]
Taking advantage of government apathy, the managements of the private pharmacy colleges in Kerala are allegedly flouting the rules and regulations enacted by government for admissions for pharmacy courses, specifically for Pharm D programme.

The breach of norms includes collection of capitation fees even from meritorious students and violation of reservations guaranteed for OBC and SC-ST candidates.


The supercilious managements are at their willfulness to defy the merit quota for admissions and fill up all the 30 seats (100 per cent) of the Pharm D in management quota, says students seeking admissions to the six year course.

According to some admission seekers, certain colleges are asking for a sum of Rs. 10 lakhs as capitation fee in addition to the annual course fees. The course fee for the first year of Pharm D comes around Rs. 2 lakh. Students who secured over 98 per cent marks at Plus 2 level also have to pay capitation fee for their admissions.

The figures add up to around 1 in 1,000 doctors who are trained in UK being struck off during that period as against 1 in 250 of those trained in India, and 1 in 350 of those from Pakistan. The country with the largest number of doctors removed from the UK register is India, followed by Pakistan, Egypt and Nigeria.
