I am very thankful for providing me this opportunity and it is with sincere sense of gratification that I pen down by brief statement of purpose before you. I am ***, 21 years old. I am studying B. Pharmacy final year in the reputed university college of pharmaceutical science, kakatiya university. I have always believed in the credo “If you set your sights for and the intention to do hard work is strong, your feet will carry you there”. It is to this belief that I attribute all my accomplishments till today and my passion to study further. Pursuit of knowledge has always been my obsession and the propelling force behind all my achievements. My decision to pursue graduate study blends harmoniously with my eventual objective of taking up research-oriented career in the area of PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCE.
I would like to present my past performances as my credentials for success in future endeavors. My academic performance was good & this acted as a booster & made me look at future with confidence & excitement. My schooling provided me with the much needed information for a scientific approach in life. I learned that just having interest is not sufficient & that it needs to be supplemented with hard work & determination to succeed. I scored 91.6% in the 10th grade. This result filled me with more confidence & left me with a predilection for academics. Then came the phase of pre-university examination ( 10+2 ) in which i secured 94.5%.It was this fascination & years of hard work resulted in my selection in engineering and medicine common entrance test(EAMCET) in which i was ranked among the top 3% of one lakh candidates which fetched me an admission into the university college of pharmaceutical science, kakatiya university. It is one of the best pharmacy college in our state with excellent faculty & competitive environment. The emphasis at our college is on having a thorough knowledge of fundamental principles & studying a wide spectrum of courses ranging from essential features of subjects to the core topics. My under graduation studies has provided me with a strong and comprehensive background in pharmacy. In my undergraduate curriculum, I was exposed to subjects like pharmaceutics, biotechnology, pharmacology, microbiology, biochemistry, physical pharmacy, edicinal chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physiology and I was given a strong foundation in core subjects that have provided commendable groundwork for my advanced study and honed my laboratory skills in these areas.
I was in particular interested in pharmaceutics. This is such a branch that any person who has heart to feel & a mind to understand its depth & applications, which is highly diverse as well as expanding by leaps & bounds cannot resist himself without choosing career in this field, especially formulation of dosage forms has proven to be a powerful area in research to surmount various difficulties in formulation of new chemical entities. So this area has got tremendous research and development application in industry and moreover it has the ability to adjudicate various queries in the field of pharmaceutical science. Out of my own volition i have chosen pharmaceutical science, which offers ample scope for research activities and these parallels with my aspiration of a M.S degree. Pharmaceutical sciences is considered with the study of the scientific study of the composition, properties, and activities of substances, Drugs and the changes they undergo. With the advancement in technology, pharmaceutics has evolved into a distinct discipline which has helped the field of pharmacy every where in improving the efficacy of drugs by studying drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, etc., which would definitely help in the manufacture of better drugs.
As a student of pharmacy I learnt that practical work & experience is more important than just theoretical learning, as our profession involves extensive research and experimentation. I have also learnt how simple molecules are synthesized in the laboratory, how aseptic conditions are met, how sterility of products are tested, how the nature of pharmaceutical preparations effect the manufacturing process and several other experiments related to pharmacokinetics. I have undergone Industrial training at Integrated Product Development and Analytical R & D Division of “Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Limited”. This training provided me with a pragmatic outlook and the prerequisite attitude and aptitude for research.
In academics i have put my best efforts & have secured 81% till my third year of B. pharmacy & have actively participated in seminar & lab work. Being the class representative gave me a sense of responsibility & duty. Having faith in me, my lecturers would ask me to perform like dissolution testing, performing TLC, U . V Spectroscopic evaluation of concentration of drugs, either alone or in a team which I lead. This is part of our course work, which has given me the opportunity to gain an insight into conducting an experiment, the planning of an experiment and the common problems faced in an experiment. Besides these I won several prizes in Debate, Essay writing competitions held at university level.My participation in seminars: NATIONAL PHARMACY WEEK(2005,2006,2007,2008) INDIAN PHARMACY CONGRESS, LATEST TRENDS IN PHARMACEUTICS AND PHARMACOKINETICS helped me to know the future prospectus of pharmaceutics.
