The use of simulation is advancing rapidly throughout pharmacy education. The literature available within healthcare education, notably pharmacy training programs, is clearly documenting the effective use of this unique learning methodology to advance knowledge, clinical performance, communication, critical thinking, and problem solving skills in pharmacy graduates. This special issue will be dedicated to the growth of simulation education within pharmacy and the future horizons for continuing to advance education in order to produce high-level clinical pharmacists worldwide.
