Pharmacy Career:  how to become a Pharmacist

If you are an entrepreneur seeking opportunity in the booming retail Industry, you could explore how to become a pharmacist.

Homeopathy retail store will be a good move as it enjoys relatively better margins and much less competition.

This blog article explores the avenues to help you start with a homeopathy store in your city. Our experience in starting a retail store is brought to bear in this article and we hope it will help you open one by avoiding common pitfalls.

 

About Homeopathic Industry in India:

Before exploring how to become a pharmacist, lets examine the market in India. India is among the 66 WHO identified countries where Homeopathy is practiced and its popularity is growing by the day. The market is growing at 25% annually in India and by conservative estimate is around 85 billion in 2014. What makes the Homeopathy market impressive is the fact that 100 million Indians solely depend on Homeopathy. This number is expected to go up to 160 million in a few years with greater awareness and choices made available. This market is currently serviced by 500,000 registered homeopaths and 20,000 more being added every year. Supporting this ecosystem are 185 homeopathic colleges in the country, and 11,000 homeopathic hospital beds. By becoming a pharmacist you sit on a huge demand generated by this ecosystem.

Industry body ASSOCHAM recently conducted a survey on ‘Homeopathy adoption’ in major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore and other satellite towns like Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Lucknow . It randomly surveyed 5000 patients and found that over 55 per cent preferred Homeopathy as the treatment is safer and physiologically satisfactory with no side effects. World Health Organization (WHO) has also independently assessed and concluded that homeopathy is the second largest system of medicine in the world. As per WHO the annual turnover of homeopathic medicines accounts to Rs 8,400 crore globally and is expected to touch Rs 52,000 crore by 2017.

 

How to become a Pharmacist: Step 1 - Understand the Market 

Major Homeopathy Brands in India: The top 5 homeopathic brands in the country in terms of Business Turnover are SBL, Dr.Reckeweg, Dr.Willmar Schwabe, Baksons and Medisynth. Other major brands with pan India presence and good market standing are St.Georges, Adel, Turabh, Fourrts, BBP, Allen, Bhargava, Bio-India, Doliosis, Lords, Sintex, Wheezal, HSI, Natel Neutratec, Nikir.

 

All the above companies follow General Manufacturing Practices (GMP standards) and a few among them also follow international standards like Pharm Betro and PIC. While most companies follow criteria outlined in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia (HAB) and Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia India (HPI), some also follow German pharmacopoeia (DAB), European pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur), United States Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia (HPUS) in their manufacturing guidelines.

 

Homeopathy Trade Policies and practices: You need to have a good understanding of the major brands (as stated above) and the general trade practices and norms followed by the Homeopathic companies as a first step towards becoming a pharmacist.  This would be relevant if you are dealing directly with companies.

Some essential guidelines are as follows 

  1. Minimum order value ( i.e, order you place with company at any given point in time) is between Rs.10000 - Rs.30,000. Order to supply turnaround time is anywhere between 15 - 30 days and you will have to make Inventory plans in advance. Freight may be paid by the company based on order value or general understanding. 
  2. Incentive (or discounts ) are provided based on sales performance linked to annual turnover, quarterly and annual growth achieved for the financial year. Additionally if you pay upfront money for your order you may be entitled to Cash Discount between 2%-3%. Incentives payment is linked to timely submission of ‘C’ forms (tax filing statement with tax authorities). 
  3. Trade credit is extended by companies based on your track record. You can enjoy between 30 -45 days credit facility but do not expect this in your first transaction as companies expect you to pay in advance. On the flip side if you do not pay outstanding bills within the stipulated period, you will be penalized with interest charges @ 12% - 15% on the outstanding amount. In the worst case scenario they may blacklist and stop any future dealings. 
  4. Claims regarding expiry, breakage, leakage or evaporation: In the course of business dealing with the companies you may come across products received in damaged or defective conditions. Generally Companies allow such claims provided you intimate them on timely basis and return the goods to their warehouses promptly. Replacement is done on a MRP to MRP basis with the same product or any other product depending on availability

    Basic requirements to set up a Homeopathic shop: To set up and run your shop you will need the following infrastructure : Office equipment including chairs, file cabinets, and desks, Front counter, storage racks, cash register, atleast one computer with a printer, assorted bottles, boxes, envelopes, etc. for dispensing and shipment. Telephone, Storefront (Name Board will suffice if you do not have the budget for a Glow sign board). You will need to install a homeopathic software to manage your billing, inventory and accounts. All these involves initial outlay of costs. So you need to make a list of items and arrive at the costs. You can take quotations from few sources or suppliers and arrive at the approximate costs involved in setting up a shop

     

    How to become a Pharmacist: Step 3 - Know the legal requirements

    You will need to have Trade licenses & permits  to set up a Homeopathic shop in India:

    Trade License : You need to apply for a VAT (value added tax) registration with the local sales tax authorities. This is a state subject and handled by the commercial tax department of the local state Government. Many states have implemented online submission and payment of fees for local VAT registration.

    1. If you are a Homeopath it is ideal for you to extend your practice with a Homeopathic pharmacy shop. If you are not then identify a suitable homeopath in your locality or city who is willing to partner with you. This is not essential but in our experience a clinic attached with a Homeopathic pharmacy do better Business than standalone shops. 
    1. You will need to maintain essential inventory of all categories of Homeopathic products. This includes Dilutions, Mother Tinctures, Triaturations, BioChemics, Biocombinations, Speciality products . 
    1. Your Pharmacy's target market may consists of different groups, in-house prescriptions, local customers or walk-ins, local doctors prescriptions, telephone enquiries and mail order customers. 
    1. There is no standard Homeopathic software available in the market. A good software meant for homeopathic industry is essential for successful operation. Do not buy any software that is meant for allopathic medical shops. 
    1. Create awareness locally through Newspaper inserts, community forums, local directory pages.
    1. Franchisee route: This is a ideal option if you want a template model wherein the franchiser provides you with set up support in the form of Inventory, Software, Shop collaterals etc on a revenue sharing basis. Homeomart is currently the only known entity that offers homeopathy pharmacy franchisee opportunities for potential entrepreneurs.

    Why acidity, flatulence and indigestion are linked to one another?

    Acidity Flatulence and indigestion are three symptoms that are interlinked and appear as a result of each other. When acid levels in stomach rise it disturbs the digestive system by affecting the pH in lower areas of the stomach.  This leads to indigestion, flatulence and colic. Migraine and headache is also commonly seen in gastric disturbances. Long term effects of  excess hydrochloric acid secreted by stomach leads to gastro oesophageal reflex disease (GERD), cause dyspepsia and lead to peptic ulcer.

    You should change your lifestyle habits to avoid this condition.  Timely consumption of moderate food, lowering alcohol intake, cutting down on spices, Tea, Coffee will help reduce this condition.

    How does  homeopathy treatment  work?

    Homeopathic doctors adopt a rigorous standards of evaluation than conventional medicine practitioners. Allopathic doctors see cure as a improvement or cessation in symptoms  regardless of other factors such patient overall health.  For them disappearance of one disease followed by the  onset of another  are two unrelated events, assuming the former was cured .  When you go to a conventional doctor he hands you a prescription for a medication that typically treats the symptoms but has a laundry list of scary side effects, few of which are mentioned to you at that time

    By contrast homeopathic doctors consider all symptoms and conditions affecting the patient as prerequisites to the success of the treatment. In the process they evaluate seemingly unconnected symptoms together to ascertain the general health status and determine the best homeopathic medicines for the patient. In Homeopathic vocabulary a patient only has one illness, even if it is manifest in many different symptoms and he is considered ‘cured’ only if all levels of the patient condition  including mental health improve.  This means homeopaths give one single medicine which affects the patient as a whole and removes all his troubles. There is no medicine for any particular disease but there is medicine for the patient who is suffering from the disease. In essence Homeopathic treatment  works by stimulating the body’s own healing power. This stimulus assists your system in clearing itself of any expressions of imbalance
