The Brain Drain of Qualified Clinical Pharmacy Professionals in Pakistan’s Pharmacy Education: A Retrospective Study

Pakistan is a country where the pharmacy education is in transition. In 2004, the educational authorities i.e. Pharmacy Council of Pakistan (PCP) and the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan upgraded the curriculum from a 4 year Bachelor of Pharmacy B. Pharm degree to 5 year Doctor of Pharmacy (D. Pharm) degree. The reason for the upgradation was to incorporate the patient oriented clinical pharmacy courses in the degree program, and to transform it from a solely industrial oriented degree to a more comprehensive degree with a health care oriented focus. The innovation behind this modification was the fact that pharmacists in the developed countries were associated with health care and the pharmaceutical care offered by the pharmacists was very helpful in augmenting the positive patient outcomes.
