Health Care System Reform of Chinaputs forward new requirements for service-oriented pharmaceutical talents. Traditional mode of higher pharmaceutical education in China could not meet the social demand because of its “drug-centered” teaching system and shortage of service-oriented pharmaceutical talents. So it is urgent to transform the traditional mode and cultivate application-oriented pharmaceutical talents. This paper will give some suggestions, including establishing uniform standards for cultivating service-oriented pharmaceutical talents and transiting traditional curriculum and teaching methods. Moreover, it is feasible to establish effective linkup between professional degree and license examination.
