Why invest in excellence in pharmacy education?
- Pharmacists play a vital role in improving patient care through the medications they dispense and information they provide.
- Scientific advances will make more drug products available.
- The increasing numbers of middle-aged and elderly patients-who use more prescription drugs than younger people-will continue to spur demand for pharmacists.
- Health insurance plans including Medicare are covering a greater number of life-improving prescription drugs, creating demand for more pharmacists.
- There is an unprecedented demand for pharmacists in a wide variety of occupational settings, our communities and institutions.
