Pharmacy or Pharmaceutical Sciences has evolved as a sought after profession throughout the world. The purpose of Pharmacy Education is to mould a new generation of efficient and effective professionals of pharmacy who can lead and take the profession of pharmacy to higher levels in the future. Educationally qualified, professionally trained, mentally motivated pharmacy professionals with capacity for innovations and capability to solve the arising problems and issues in the society are essential for the development and growth of the profession of pharmacy. There is always a direct relationship between education and practice. India is not having a long tradition of Pharmacy, pharmacy education or practice of pharmacy as in the case of European or Western countries. The first modern pharmaceutical manufacturing unit in India was started only in 1901 and the Pharmacy education at University level was started only in 1932. Even at the time of independence India was producing drugs worth only 10 crores of rupees and there were only 5 Pharmacy degree colleges in the country. By 2017 India became the third largest producer of medicines in the world and became the Pharmacy of the world by 2019. By 2020 the number of Pharmacy colleges in India increased to about 2700 with 820 in UP,551 in Maharashtra and 56 in Kerala.
The concept of Pharmacy education is getting changed very much in modern days and one has to expect many changes in the post COVID 19 period throughout the world.
