The profession of Pharmacy is an integral part of the heath care system worldwide. It is a versatile, dynamic, growing and increasing diverse profession, since last decade the pharmacy profession in India is evolving due to industrialization and increase in patients need, leading to an increase in the demand of pharmacy professionals. Many developed nations such as Australia, UK and US have also given prescription rights to pharmacist to reduce the burden of physician and improve their quality of care. However in India compare to western countries, the role of the community pharmacist is limited. The current era of globalization has witness evolution in the profession of health sectors especially in Pharmacy. Whereas previously the pharmacist worldwide was seen as responsible primarily for manufacturing, supplying the medicines, today the Pharmacist role has expanded from dispensing to pharmaceutical care by maximizing the benefits of medications and their safety.

India is well advanced in the field of medical education and medical care. The growth can be attributed to quality medical institutions available and partly due to the application of technology in medicine.

The Pharmaceutical Industry in India is one of the largest and most advanced among the developing countries. Besides providing employment to millions, it ensures that essential drugs are available at affordable prices to the vast population of India. Pharmacists are practicing the following areas like community (retail) pharmacy, medical store/chemists and druggist, hospital pharmacy and clinical pharmacy and they form a vital link between the physician, nurses and the patients. As a core part of a health care team, Pharmacists are playing a key role in assuring that medicines are supplied in a safe and effective manner along with relevant information to the patients.
