Abstract: E-Pharmacy is a pharmacy that sells medicines on the internet and delivers them to customers. Owing to its benefits there are certain risk factors in purchase of online medications. The main aim of this study is to assess knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) of II MBBS students towards E-Pharmacy. A KAP questionnaire was prepared and sent to all students through Google forms. The questionnaire was divided into 4 sections including demographic data, knowledge, attitude and practice domains. A total of 240 responses were collected, out of which 196 (81.6%) participants were aware of online pharmacy. The awareness was more in female and that too in urban population. Despite being aware of online pharmacy, majority of them prefer offline pharmacy due to lack of trustworthy/ fear of fake websites. The utmost reason for buying online medicine was deficiency of availability of medicines in market and differences in the prices. Therefore, the future of online pharmacy can be improved by setting guidelines, awareness and knowledge among the users.
