Department of Pharmacology

 

Introduction

 

The Department of Pharmacology was established in the year 2011 under the headship of Professor (Dr.) Harihar Dikshit. In a short journey of 6 years the Department of Pharmacology was raised from dust to one of the most well equipped department of this prestigious institute of the state.

Department of Pharmacology is actively involved in training 2nd Prof. MBBS, BSc Nursing and BSc MLT students in both theoretical as well as practical aspects of pharmacology. The theoretical aspects are supplemented by technological innovations in teaching pharmacology. A simulation laboratory for demonstrating the effects of drugs on in-vivo & in-vitro models using computers is functional. The laboratory has the infrastructure, software and hardware in place for training MBBS students. Practical aspects of pharmacology are covered in traditional extemporaneous pharmacy and prescription writing for common diseases. This is included keeping in view of rational drug use and the implication of pharmacoeconomics.

Besides teaching, students are also trained for detecting, analyzing and reporting Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) as a part of curriculum. The Department is committed to provide best quality and clinically oriented information to MBBS students to make them into rational prescribers.

Recently the department is inspected by the MCI for starting MD course from 2016-17. The department is also working hard to start MSc (Medical Pharmacology) and PhD from the next session.

Infrastructure & Facilities  

  1. Experimental Pharmacology cum CAL (computer assisted learning) or e-lab: On 5th Sept, 2014 the CAL (computer assisted learning) Lab was established with 11 computers using the most modern software from Elsevier which of course is first in Bihar and Jharkhand. This boosts up the understanding & knowledge about the subject by the undergraduate students along with non – sacrificing of the animals for experimental purpose as directed by the Medical Council of India.
  2. Clinical Pharmacy Lab: A well equipped clinical pharmacy lab with well trained pharmacist is running by the department. The modern way of teaching to the medical graduates makes it relevant in the present scenario.
  3. Research Lab: A well equipped Research Lab for carrying out the research in the field of Neuro-pharmacology, Psycho-pharmacology, Cardio-vascular pharmacology and Respiratory pharmacology is recently being established. Instrument available in the Research Lab are:

Patient Care

  1. ADR Monitoring Centre (AMC): The tireless effort of Professor (Dr.) Harihar Dikshit to establish ADR monitoring centre under Pharmacovigilance Programme of India made the Department of Pharmacology, IGIMS in 2012 to start Adverse Drug Reaction monitoring program which of course is first in the state and is also one of the milestone for the Institute. The centre is also receiving the ADR reports from the different hospitals of the states. One technical associate Mr. Shambhu Dokania MS (Pharma) is working under this Programme. AMC of the Institute has been awarded as the best AMC of India for the year 2015-16 by the Pharmacovigilance Programme of India.
  1. Pulmonary function test: Department has started clinical services, Pulmonary Function test, for the patient on 26.08.2016. Till date 700 Pulmonary Function Test have been done.
  1. Future plans include the setting up of the Drug & Poison Information Centre and Therapeutic Drug Monitoring unit in the hospital under the Department of Pharmacology.

 

Awards and honours

 

ADR Monitoring Centre of the IGIMS, has been awarded as the best AMC by Pharmacovigilance Programme of India for the year 2015-16.
