Abstract:

The focus of higher education has witnessed a paradigm shift from mere addressing the needs of literacy to cater to wider global challenges. With success of opportunity based learning, it is clear that higher education should prepare an individual with outcome based learning, focusing on cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills. In this regard, the present article addresses some of the key components that need to be revised in the pharmacy education in line with development of Pharmaceuticals and Health care system across the globe. Based on my personal experience, I have made an attempt to shed some light on important issues that needs to be revised specifically in research and academic streams. I am certain that many of my fellow professionals share this view and are optimistic about the future

Key words: Pharmacy Education, Outcome based learning, Research based teaching, Quality Education.
