The profession of pharmacy and standards directing the education of student pharmacists are constantly evolving. The profession continues to emphasize patient-centered practice as a model for the future. The US health care system is faced with an impending shortage of primary care providers, which will affect the ability of patients to access the health care system. The pharmacy profession should position itself to contribute to meeting this need. The explicit instruction of differential diagnosis within Doctor of Pharmacy degree programs is a critical consideration in advancing pharmacy practice and potential contributions to the primary care gap.
