A Pharmacist is responsible for dispensing, storage and manufacturing of drugs.

Apart from this, it also offers clinical services like counselling the patients about the correct use, dosages, side effects and adverse reaction of the drugs and assist them in the treatment of poisoning. He also makes them aware about deadly diseases like AIDS, Cancer, Hepatitis and helps in their prevention and early detection. It is the pharmacist, who first of all becomes aware of an epidemic of infectious disease in a community. Thus, pharmacy is a centre of community health and contributes a great deal to preventive and social medicine. It acts as a drug information centre providing a link between the physician and patient. The importance of Pharmacy is evident from the fact that even a skilled physician is dependent on pharmacist for the supply of pure and effective medicines to cure the patient.<br/<>
