Pakistan has made significant progress over the last few years in research and professional practices in the field of Pharmaceutical Sciences, which is evident from the exponential growth of academic institutions, pharmacy care services and pharmaceutical industry. With major advancement in the research culture; career opportunities are extensive and varied in this rapidly expanding field. Despite all this, there is an acute shortage of properly trained and capable pharmaceutical management professionals.
