Pharmacy practice has undergone dramatic changes in the last 30 years. The pharmacist's responsibilities have moved from supplying medication in bulk towards stocks and extemporaneously compounding preparation to an important integrated member of the patient care team. Today, hospital pharmacists are vital players on the health care team acting as therapeutic experts, during information specialists, nutritional service members, and pharmacokinetic consultants. Guidelines to pharmacy college faculty in assessing and revising their curriculums and to design a continuing pharmaceutical education program was established by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). The two major outcomes of these two guidelines are professional practice-based outcomes and general ability-based outcomes. The University of Tanta, College of Pharmacy had developed new curriculum for its graduate pharmacy students to face the challenge of modern pharmacy practice. The ACCP guidelines were taken into account for developing this new curriculum and in designing course contents for the pharmacist to accept responsibility for the overall effects of the therapeutic process. However, some obstacles have raised on the surface when it comes to actually applying the principle of pharmaceutical care. These problems include: I) inadequate practicing experience; II) misunderstanding of the role of pharmaceutical services by the medical staff; III) the inherited lack of coordination between pharmacists and the rest of health team; IV) absence of in-service programs to the nursing staff by practicing ward pharmacists; V) lack of applied visible or sensible valuable pharmaceutical services; VI) inadequate life-long learning 86 practice; VII) minimal effort is exerted in the promotion of public awareness regarding public health and disease. However, local measures are currently undertaken to correct these problems along with the implementation of the Pharm. D. program.
