Pharmacy Practice students play an important role in identifying and reporting Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs). Prior studies focused on knowledge of pharmacy students on reporting ADRs. There are no studies conducted to assess the knowledge and understand the perception of students on causality assessment of ADRs. A web-based cross-sectional study was conducted from October 2019 to April 2020 among the Pharmacy Practice students in various pharmacy colleges across India. Consent form was obtained before filling the questionnaire. The questionnaire was distributed through social media applications and staff of respective colleges. Descriptive analysis was performed to calculate frequencies and percentages of categorical variables.
