Abstract

With 21 st Century, the pharmaceutical industry is constantly bringing in new challenges upfront day by day. There is constant need of knowledgeable and competent workforce in different streams of pharmaceutical industry having soft skills and positive energy. In India, to meet the current Pharma industry demands, adequate restructuring of pharmacy academia is required to match current updates of research and innovation from the industry. New courses such as Pharmacovigilance, Medical Writing, Drug Regulatory Affairs, Pharmaceutical Marketing and Pharmaceutical Manufacturing should be introduced as a part of curriculum to match Research and Regulatory needs and should not limit to professional trainings. In developed countries, such courses are already in place. Pharmacists with such additional skill-sets are in great demand in India as well as overseas. So, the time has arrived for institutions in India to strategize and implement change in pharmacy curriculum in order to meet global needs.
