Various developments that occur at the national and global levels include the increasing need for quality health services. Globalization, which has a huge influence on the implementation of education and the quality of graduates, as well as the rapid development of science and technology, requires Indonesian higher pharmaceutical education to make fundamental changes in order to face the various challenges that exist. Globalization that allows mobility of health workers between countries can be a threat, but it is also an opportunity for our pharmaceutical workers to be able to take part at the national level and abroad.
