Abstract

Policies exist at many levels and impact the practice of pharmacy in a wide variety of ways. Some pharmacists may seek advanced education related to policy development and assessment.In this article, policy is defined and the various ways the term is used with regard to the profession are reviewed with selected examples provided. Sources of information about policy-related degree programs offered both by educational units primarily focusing on pharmacy and units outside the specialty area are emphasized along with points to consider in making a decision. Examples of career opportunities are provided and questions to consider are presented.
