ABSTRACT
The Education is a must for a nation‟s progress irrespective of other problems prevailing in that country. Education has the power to revamp the whole system or irregularities or any gross root problems like food, clothing and shelter; three basic needs since the dawn of civilization. In India many technical courses like engineering, pharmacy, management, architecture, town planning etc. are being run under the aegis of various controlling bodies. Pharmaceutical sciences is one of the most important branches dealing with medicines and thus with the health of a nation. At present courses like diploma, degree, post-graduation and recently launched Pharm. D. and five year integrated MBA (with pharma) are in force in country. Still there are some lacunae in these curricula which is reflected by the unemployed people after doing these courses. This review discusses basic problems and possible suggestions to make pharmacy curricula foolproof along with pedagogy so that more and more students can be made employable and versatile at the same time making them as tough as wild plants.
