The goal of teaching undergraduate students in Pharmacology is to inculcate the essentials of rational and scientific basis of therapeutics. Also, to enable students capable of using drugs in clinical practice with scientific awareness by means of integrated teaching with clinical and pre-clinical departments. Pharmcom - A unique competition to impart communication skills  among MBBS students is conducted every year. A Multidisciplinary project day is conducted involving all the departments across phase II, to groom  psychomotor skills among students. Students are provided opportunity to do seminar with the help of facilitator.

2. MD- Pharmacology
To facilitate students to develop in-depth pharmacology knowledge pertaining to rational use of drugs, clinical pharmacology, Pharmacovigilance and pharmacoeconomics.

The objectives:
To orient students towards basic concepts in pharmacology and pharmacotherapeutics, clinical pharmacology, toxicology and essential aspects of clinical trials process and regulatory affairs, including interpretation of its results, importance of adherence to GCP guidelines, observe BA/BE studies & clinical trials by means of a short industrial internship and also to train postgraduate students in analytical instrumentation like spectrophotometry exercises, animal handling techniques and short animal experiments in the GLP accredited CEFT Centre in Sriramachandra institute of higher education and research.

To train the students to the role of Hospital clinical Pharmacologists in prescription auditing, assessing drug information, high alert drugs, look alike and sound alike medications and devising hospital formulary and antibiotic policies. Short projects and studies are allotted to students to perform and they are assessed at the end of the postings in medication safety under clinical pharmacologists.

To train them effectively as high quality teachers with quick adaptation to various innovative styles of teaching methodologies like small group discussion, case resolution, facilitators for project based learning apart from didactic lectures. To Orient postgraduate students in medical education technologies through workshops, ethics in research courses, ACLS, BLS courses, research methodology, scientific writing, grant writing, creativity, soft skills including communication skills.

To train postgraduates in Pharmacovigilance activities like hospital rounds to collect adverse effects, to interact with clinicians and nurses and sensitize about reporting and filling of ADR forms, to perform causality assessments, to familiarize with vigiflow software to upload the individual case safety reports. They are also trained to refer the standard reference books to identify and narrate the rare adverse effects and the dissemination of drug safety alerts. They are actively made to contribute and write articles in newsletters and carry out projects.

To sensitize and train postgraduate students to computer aided learning, drug related patent laws, procedures and regulatory affairs, SOP writing skills, organizational skills by conducting programmes. To foster and broaden the research perspectives among students in the field of pharmacology by leveraging collaborative multidisciplinary approaches and alternative to animal experiments using cell lines, zebra fish and c.elegans. 

3. MD-PhD
To enable students to pursue research in various domains of pharmacology such as drug discovery and molecular mechanisms of drug action, screening of potential lead compounds to chosen targets using novel animal models (Zebra Fish), characterization and pharmacokinetics of Phytochemicals in Nano Pharmacology. They receive stipend from ICMR during their tenure as junior research fellows. so far 2 research scholars have successfully completed MD-PhD in pharmacology and have been placed in high positions in multinational companies. 

4. PhD
To guide students in Pharmacology research in relation to drug discovery, repurposing in the fields of Psychiatry, oncology, Neurology, Endocrinology, and pharmacogenetics, phytochemical screening of drugs and preclinical toxicity of drugs.
