L. M. College of pharmacy aims to offer world class pharmacy education to fulfill the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry and health needs of the society at a large and to achieve excellence in pharmaceutical research.
L. M. College of Pharmacy (LMCP) was founded in 1947 on a humble donation of Rs. 3.0 lakhs by the family of late Seth Shri Lallubhai Motilal after whom the college is named. The college is run by the prestigious "The Ahmedabad Education Society".
The current intake capacity of D.Pharm., B.Pharm. and M.Pharm. is 120, 75 and 40 respectively. We have trained 5900 D.Pharm., 4400 B.Pharm., 1200 M.Pharm. and 150 Ph.D. during the last 65 years. The state of Gujarat produces more than 40% of the drugs manufactured in India. One of the reasons for such a phenomenal growth of the Pharma industry in Gujarat is the presence of LMCP in the state. The performance of the students in the University and competitive examinations (GATE, GPAT, CAT, NAPLEX, TOEFL, etc.) is par excellence. The campus placement is almost 100% for the graduate and postgraduate students. More than 60% of the graduates are settled abroad. The major strength of the college is the experienced staff members and modern research laboratories. The college's library is considered as one of the best pharmacy library in our country. The college has filed twenty patents in Indian Patent office, Mumbai after 2002. The research work of the postgraduate students and the Ph. D. students is regularly published in leading international refereed journals. The college regularly receives financial assistance from the funding agencies such as AICTE, DST, UGC, GSBTM, AYUSH, GUJCOST, etc. About 1 crore Rs. has been received after 2010 for modernization of laboratories and research. Institute has also signed MoU with Zydus group, Zydus Hospitals, Emcure Pharmaceuticals Ltd., and many other pharma companies for Student and faculty training, collaborative research and financially supported research projects. Efforts are on to strengthen tie-ups with industry. We are continuously promoting students for innovations and entrepreneurship. We have planned to establish incubation centre in the college. Our aim is to make LMCP globally renowned Pharma institute by 2022, the year which we will be celebrating as a “Diamond Jubilee” year.
We are proudly announcing the commencement of Pharm D course from the academic year 2017-18 with a goal to be important partner in strengthening healthcare system.
