Pharmacist’s demand entry for bridge course on community hea
The Karnataka State Government Pharmacist’s Association (KSGP) has written a letter to the Mission Director of National Health Mission regarding entry to the bridge course on Community Health.

In the contents of the letter, the Association stated:

‘Sir, we request you to on behalf of the Association as per National Health Mission 2017 make pharmacy eligible for that said Bridge Course and we also urge to open the Course for Community Pharmacist irrespective of age serving mankind in different parts of Karnataka.’

The pharmacists state they will be able to serve people better on advising them on what medications they could take for different health conditions.

Kailash Tandle, President, Maharashtra Registered Pharmacist Association, said, “A pharmacist studies pharmacology more than an Ayurveda and a Homoeopathy doctor. The pharmacist has knowledge about medicines on par with the MBBS doctor. So, if the government is allowing a bridge course for the dentist and Ayurveda doctors, then why not us?”

Currently, the union government is contemplating a bridge course for dentists to become family physicians. And there is a pre-existing bridge course in Maharashtra which allows practitioners of Ayurveda and Homoeopathy to practice allopathy.

Ok so now the pharmacist can also prescribe the medicines and they just want to have a course for that....an mbbs doctor does a lot more than prescribing medicines I think.....I don' t think pharmacists would be able to manage patients in critical situations......and this is just one of the instances what a MBBS doctor is trained in his 5 and a half year training

Lol I am certainly in favour of a few govt dental students (cause atleast for name they are taught same subjects for first 3 years)but when it comes to other streams like pharmacy it certainly gives me chills cause these are not medical professionals these people are related to chemistry.they have completely different syllabus they have nothing related to human body in their syllabus except the very basics that even a undergraduate knows....
