Back to college....

After a long two-year break from studies, I am finally back to college. I am pursuing Masters in Pharmacy (specialising in Hospital & Clinical Pharmacy) at Amrita School of Pharmacy (under Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, deemed university) Edappalli, Kochi, Kerala. Its a two year programme, with one year for theoretical studies and one for thesis/research work along with an internship at the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences (A 1200-bed super-speciality, tertiary referral hospital in Ernakulam).

Ours is a batch of 10 students (there are two more specialisations, with 10 students each). There was a long inaugural session, and a mandatory visit to the Library. The inaugural session was interesting - and boring - in every manner.

A few words about the institution - the institution is affiliated to Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham Deemed University. The University was recently accredited with an "A" rating by the NAAC. The University was founded by Shri Mata Amritananda Mayi (fondly called Amma). The Pharmacy school was established in 1997, and currently offers Bachelor and Masters programmes in Pharmacy. The Institution is also in the process of starting a Pharm.D (Doctor in Pharmacy) programme, and also a full-time research PhD programme. The college is located within - but a while away from - the AIMS campus.

What makes life interesting for the student in me, is that the access to the institution is across a railway line! On the very first day, my arrival at Edappalli was celebrated by WAP4 #22617 of Arakkonam rushing through with the Dhanbad Express! The daily grind has just begun - expect the blog to become more irregular (perhaps could be the opposite as well), and more interesting content would be on this way...
