  • Ms.Suda Jain (currently in Final year B.Pharm) took online session with Professional Counselor Mrs.Priya Patwardhan. She has expressed her opinion as:

In my First Year, I was introduced to our college’s counseling program. Priya ma’am not only helped me find a balance but also redirect my focus. I had a hard time settling in this new environment and counseling helped me ease into it. Talking to her once a week helped me work on my issues and improve them both personally and academically. I highly recommend this for all students as this will help you in the long term. Counseling helps you in both your personal and professional lives and trust me you will appreciate these small changes over a span of time.

It’s my humble request to each one of you to take counseling sessions that will help in empowering yourself. Taking the sessions will also help you to better handle your career as well as personal issues.

Summary of Mentoring Activity for the year 2020-2021

  • As per usual Mentoring system, Mentees except First year B.Pharm continued to get counseling by respective Faculty members.
  • This year we have introduced Buddy Mentoring system as approved by Senior Staff members and Principal Madam.This system is being followed in Institutes of Repute.
  • This system has planned to distribute students of First Year B.Pharm amongst the interested and selected students of Third Year B.Pharm and students of M.Pharm, who were with us for their B.Pharm graduation as well.
