About: Affiliation


In 2007, Girijananda Chowdhury Institute of Pharmaceutical Science (GIPS) began its operations as the first non-government pharmacy institute in the state of Assam. The college was established under the aegis of Shrimanta Shankar Academy (SSA) - a registered service organization, set up in 1992, to help the society and its youth progress through education.

GIPS lives by three values - Truth, Discipline, and Excellence. It aims to establish a morally sound education system that not only produces competent professionals, but also excellent human beings contributing towards the welfare of the society.

The institute's primary objective is to provide the best pharmaceutical education in the North East.

To achieve this, GIPS has invested in state-of-the-art infrastructure, and highly knowledgeable faculty - most of whom either hold, or are pursuing their doctorate.

The college takes a lot of care to stay up-to-date with the changing trends in pharmaceuticals by constantly interacting with industry stalwarts. Another way it maintains its edge is by conducting its own research.


GIPS will be globally prominent in pharmacy education and collaborative research. Our graduates are competitive with those from any pharmacy program in the country, equaling or exceeding other graduates in scientific knowledge; clinical expertise and their ability to think broadly, address complex problems and adapt to diverse environments.


Fostering graduates and professionals who will maximize the health of the public by advancing patient care and facilitating the discovery, understanding and cost effective use of medicines. The institute will provide a strong foundation in the knowledge, integration and application of the biomedical, pharmaceutical, social and behavioral science resulting in leaders in advancing the pharmacy profession.


The quality and completeness of our students education is our top priority.
We pursue excellence in education and scholarship.
We have the responsibility to assure that our graduates will safeguard the health of the public.
There is community within the facility and staff that is premised on collegiality, mutual trust, respect, honesty and integrity.
The institute is responsible to its students, staff and the faculty to help them grow personally and professionally.
