There is a growing need for pharmacists to be trained in public health.

Although the public health role of the pharmacists has yet to be clearly defined, the pharmacist provides a wealth of health information as well as services and activities that are often public health related. The Accreditation Standards and Guidelines for the Professional Program in Pharmacy Leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy Degree across the United States stated that graduates should be competent to "promote the availability of effective health and disease prevention services and health policy through the ability to apply population-specific data, quality improvement strategies, informatics, and research processes to identify and solve public health problems and to help develop health policy." Furthermore, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) in 2004 emphasized the importance of public health in the role of pharmacists in its Center for Excellence in Pharmacy Education (CAPE) Educational Outcomes. Included in these outcomes is the "promotion of health improvement, wellness, and disease prevention in cooperation with patients, communities, and at-risk populations" through the availability of "effective, quality health and disease prevention services" and advancement of public health policy.
