Pharmacy Education: Merging Science and Practice

The characteristic of a pharmacist is the expertise on medicinal products. This expertise spans from the pharmacological basis of the use of the product, the pharmaceutical technology employed in the manufacture and the subsequent requirements for the handling of the product, the pharmaceutical regulatory processes required to ensure products that are safe, of quality and effective, and the pharmaceutical processes related to access, rationale use, risk management and patient support. The integration of fundamental sciences in patient-oriented pharmacy curricula is essential to achieve the science-focused pharmacist who is equipped to give the specific expertise and contribute to innovative medicinal products, patient safety and patient management.

From an education perspective, academia needs to move in tandem with developments in the profession. How do we integrate pharmaceutical sciences with clinical pharmacy education? How to co-ordinate with practice sites to develop experientials and pharmacy practice research?
