Executive Summary

Pharmacists play vital role in the battle against diseases. Their role in effective treatment of patients by prescribing medication is inevitable. Pharmacy education is one of the fields that are in high demand in Pakistan, as the responsibility of healthcare sector is increasing rapidly due to increase in population. Contrary to past practice; the doctors and paramedic workforce independently cannot cater the requirements of healthcare, hence it is imperative to develop professionals of allied health sciences to strengthen the healthcare facilities available in the country.

Pharmacists serve in different organizations such as hospitals, pharmaceutical industry, teaching institutions and retail/community pharmacies. A large number of pharmacists pursue their career as researcher and educator pharmacist. Educator pharmacists are responsible to foresee the future demands of the profession and to adequately prepare the future practitioners by developing technical skills and inducing empathy and care for patients. They enable the prospective graduates to act as a good resource person for patients and other healthcare professionals.
