Abstract

The present article addresses education curriculum for pharmacy practice in the communityand hospital setting. A conceptual basis for a change in pharmacy education in the age ofartificial intelligence (AI) is first provided and discussed. Then a new core curriculum isproposed to include the following components: (1) broad outcome domains (modified fromthe American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy with addition of research skill); (2)competencies relating to healthcare improvements; and (3) key pharmacy course work. Theoutcome domains can be easily mapped together with the other 2 components to show aninteractive relationship of the outcomes-based curriculum. This conceptual basis and keycomponents can offer an initial step in developing a common but relevant core curriculumpertinent to pharmacy education in the age of artificial intelligence. Such core curriculumshould be applicable not only to Asia but also other parts of the world.
