Introduction: In order to better delineate the specific roles of the pharmacist in generating positive health outcomes, pharmacy programs have incorporated the Pharmacists' Patient Care Process (PPCP). However, there has been limited integration in disciplines outside of pharmacy practice. Perspective: This article makes the case that schools need to commit to fully integrating the PPCP that is inclusive of all disciplines. By fostering such integration, all faculty can recognize their role in creating practice-ready, team-ready pharmacists that are consistent, collaborative, and drive positive patient health outcomes. There also is likely innovative integrative efforts being done related to the PPCP in non-practice disciplines, and this article provides some ideas for future scholarly efforts. Implications: If the academy embraces the PPCP fully, we can unite and demonstrate how pharmacists contribute value to the healthcare team.
