Pharmacy education plays a vital role in navigating current and future healthcare challenges. The world is facing several healthcare challenges like cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular diseases, auto-immune diseases and lifestyle diseases, especially in the post-covid era that requires aggressive and disease-centric therapeutic modalities.

It goes beyond imparting knowledge and skills and aims to cultivate critical thinking, empathy, appreciation of diversity, the anticipation of change, managing uncertainty, and value changes. By doing so, it equips individuals with the desired knowledge, professional skills, and attitudes required to promote innovation and development and drive progress towards finding newer therapeutic solutions.
