With the rise of population worldwide during the last few decades, it has been realized that the conventional traditional medical and healthcare services are unable to pay any significant role in the overall improvement of health status. This realization has driven all health professionals to the common goal of disease prevention and health promotion. In developed countries the clinical direction of Pharmacy has laid emphasis on the manipulative product-oriented and distributive skills and focuses more on the public health awareness. Today the Pharmacy profession has become highly patient-oriented which this has created much more opportunities for the pharmacists in hospital and community especially in the USA and the Middle East, while in Pakistan still 75% opportunities are in the industrial sector.
