Pharmacy as a science falls within the field of Biomedicine and Health and is a scientific field of a broader scientific scope. This affiliation predominantly characterizes pharmacy as a science to which man and his health are the subject of study, but the rope focuses on the study of medicine as such. Therefore, pharmacy becomes a multidisciplinary science that includes both basic and advanced knowledge in the fields of medicine, chemistry and biology, as well as some other natural sciences, such as physics, botany and mathematics. This definition of pharmacy indicates the need for continuous and comprehensive acquisition of knowledge, not only in the field of medicine, but also from other related natural sciences. Therefore, studying and dealing with this science becomes extremely demanding and complex.
The pharmaceutical industry has always represented, and this is especially the case in recent decades, one of the most propulsive and profitable industries. By finding and introducing the so-called smart medicines that are produced by genetic engineering techniques and processes used in biotechnology, the need to develop and acquire new knowledge as quickly as possible is further emphasized.
This refers not only to molecular biology and biotechnology, but also to the delivery and testing of the quality of these highly sophisticated drugs, but also to the continued monitoring of the safety of such drugs.
The need to deepen knowledge in each area of the drug industry is compounded by the fact that the pharmaceutical industry, after the aviation industry, is the second, most strictly regulated industry in the world.
