|ABOUT THE CONFERENCE|
|Association of Pharmaceutical Teachers of India was established with the objectives to uphold the image of Pharmacy education in general and Pharmacy teachers in particular. Under the umbrella of APTI, conventions and workshops are organized regularly from time to time to update Pharmacy teachers in the fast changing technology and professional outlook. In spite of these efforts there lies the lacuna between the Pharmacy education and the expectations of the stake holders of Pharmacy profession from pharmacy graduates and post graduates. It is a common belief that a pharmacy graduate’s knowledge level is far from the current programme for better health global care. With this backdrop in mind, the 16th APTICON-2011 is being organized with the objective to deliberate issues concerning the knowledge level needed, change in the pattern of graduate and PG courses and their curriculum. The experts in seminar would introspect the present status and would make an attempt to project a blue print of Pharmacy education in India for the coming era.|

|PLACES OF TOURIST VISIT NEAR MOGA|
|Punjab has a long history and rich cultural heritage. The region has been invaded and ruled by many different empires and races, including the Aryans, Persians, Greeks, Egyptians, Afghans, and Mongols. Around the time of the 15th Century, Guru Nanak Dev founded the Sikh religion, which quickly came to prominence in the region, and shortly afterwards, Maharaja Ranjit Singh reformed the Punjab into a secular and powerful state. The 19th century saw the beginning of British rule, which led to the emergence of several heroic Punjabi freedom fighters. In 1947, at the end of british rule, the Punjab was split between Pakistan and India. The organizers may arrange tours for the participants through authorized touring agencies for nearby locations only before or after the conference days.|
