The growing focus on training pharmacists in public health has influenced each iteration of the pharmacy education guidelines of the Center for the Advancement of Pharmaceutical Education Educational Outcomes produced by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. Starting with population-based health improvement, wellness, and disease prevention, the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education now requires pharmacy candidates be provided opportunities to participate in public health focused skills, such as immunization delivery. This chapter examines training and certification in public health, including unique specializations for pharmacy students and practitioners, career options in public health pharmacy, the continued need for public health education and training in pharmacy, and developing leadership skills.
