Recent developments making an artificial intelligence (AI) large language model available for public use have generated significant interest and angst among educators. Viewed as both a time saver and a threat to academic integrity, several questions have arisen about AI's role in education. Numerous opportunities exist to use AI for teaching and learning, but new questions have also arisen regarding AI's impact on the future of healthcare. The pharmacy Academy should be at the center of these discussions to address the technical, philosophical, and ethical issues that AI presents for the future of pharmacy and pharmacy education.
