This book further elucidates and clarifies simple socially related concepts needed for pharma
students to get through the first course of BP 703T.

experts alike. I have tried to simplify the concepts for ease of grasping even for the first year
The text was put through great lengths to keep it error-free and convey the subject in a style that
is understandable to students. However, any recommendations and helpful criticism would be
much appreciated and included in a subsequent edition. At the end of the course student will be
1. Hospital and its organisation
