Considerations about the historical evolution of pharmacy degree curriculum at Zambeze University are presented. Characteristics and limitations of the educational model established in the institution at the beginning are exposed, alongside the current tendencies of pharmaceutical professional practice, health situation and specific aspects about the use of medicines in Mozambique, all of them considered in order to restructure the first curriculum and to get a new pedagogical project in effect at present.
