Abstract Introduction: There is more need for pharmacy managers’ development regarding pharmaceutical care after Heath Reform Project. In this study, we designed, delivered and evaluated a virtual one-year short course of pharmaceutical care for pharmacy managers. Methods: We interviewed with five hospital pharmacy managers for educational need assessment. Then we developed the curriculum and performed a systematic instructional design for its blended delivery. Faculty members participated in a three-day workshop and then developed their course plans, multimedia e-contents and completed their assessment (courses’ panels) in the university Learning Management System. We delivered the one-year MBA in three modules. At the end of each module, participants evaluated the courses via a researcher-made questionnaire. Results: In total, 38 pharmacy managers participated in the course. Ten participants (26%) left the study and 28 participants succeeded to pass the final written exam with the overall score of 18.0/20 (±0.45).
