This is in consonance with the MCI guidelines which recommend that the students must be exposed to CAL experiments so as to minimise the use of laboratory animals.

Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) Monitoring Centre: The reporting of ADR is very critical and is a moral duty of all health care professionals who encounter them. The information generated helps in continuous monitoring of the risk benefit ratio of the medicines and in timely intervention as and when required. Towards achieving this goal an ADR Monitoring centre has been established in the Department of Pharmacology, AFMC under the PharmacoVigilance Programme of India (PvPI). The Centre  receives reports from AFMS hospitals in Pune-Kirkee complex and after causality assessment forwards the data to the National Coordinating Centre of PvPI
