In Nepal like developing countries, the pharmacist role is frequently discusses topic. Nepal doesn’t have a long history of established pharmacy profession; still it is in growing phase. But a lot of changes happened in last 3 decade. Before starting pharmacy education (started in 1972, I. Pharm, IOM, TU), Nepalese used to go foreign country for pharmacy education mostly in South Asian countries like India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan under self-funding or several fellowship program. Now also 1000’s of Nepalese are studying pharmacy education in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and other countries for their higher research studies. Large groups of educated and registered pharmacist are moving other countries for higher studies or for other employment better opportunities like Australia, Canada, South Korea, and USA etc.
Nepal is located in between the two large countries; China and India with large land and population. It is our great opportunity if we are able to establish a pharmaceutical university and offer world class quality pharmacy education a large group of people will choose for pharmacy study in Nepal and we can grow far beyond than the western universities.
