The whole world together is facing some tough challenges and circumstances, due to the disastrous catastrophe, which is COVID-19. Due to this, the healthcare sector across the globe is growing exponentially, resulting in the pharma sector growing at an equal rate. Until the vaccine is out, the preventive and curative measures carried out by us will ensure good health and a good economy. Due to the rapid growth of the pharma sector across the globe, great career opportunities are abundant and the demand for trained and well-equipped pharmacists is on the rise each day. For students who have dreams of taking up pharmacy school education, this is perhaps the right time and the right opportunity.
