Abstract:

The pharmacy curriculum in Pakistan was designed collaboratively by the Pharmacy Council of Pakistan and the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan. However, no consultation was sought from the experts of global pharmacy institutions. This discrepancy raised several concerns and questions regarding inadequacies in the pharmacy curriculum of Pakistani institutions.
