4.5 Academic activities

Academic pharmacists engage in education, pharmaceutical practice, and research in schools of pharmacy. These three aspects of academic activity are interrelated, and at the same time connected with manpower planning and management. Undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education require the educators to have expertise in the various pharmaceutical sciences, but, in view of the professional and vocational goals of pharmacy education and the necessary interaction of education and research with service, the academic staff must also include a substantial component of pharmacists with appropriate postgraduate education.
