Association of Pharmaceutical Teachers of India, established in 1966, by the leading personalities like Prof. M. L. Schroff, Prof G.P. Srivastava and others of pharmacy colleges of those days is an organization whose heart beats for the pharmacy profession. Earlier teachers' aims were to do the best for their own students; Later, all the teachers came under the umbrella of APTI; where the teacher's contribution could be utilised both at micro levels with multi dimensional professionalism. Teachers now not only give class room instructions but also become educators in the true sense by being counselors, motivators, guides, researchers, advisors, consultants to Pharma Companies, etc, so as to create quality pharmacists of technological era.
The Association with its publications is a good sounding board for bouncing avantGarde ideas of the members in the academic field. These can be newer teaching methodologies, fabrication of tools, Computer Aided Drug Design (CADD) and other computer applications, industry-academic interaction, academia-hospital interaction, etc. We are proud of the fact that many of the goals have already been reached but still more are to be achieved. The effort of the association has been highly appreciated.
