Pharmacy education has undergone several stages throughout history. Today, pharmacy education is implemented with a planning that meets the needs of a patient-oriented education system. The definition of pharmacy pharmacist in the world, which includes pharmacy service, drug consultancy, patient care services and clinical pharmacy issues, keeps up to date and this definition is left to the pharmacist who is the drug consultant of the patient instead of the pharmacist supplying medicine to the patient. Our program complies with the concept of pharmacist in this new definition.
