The goal of the present study was to assess and compare the level of communication apprehension (CA) among pharmacy undergraduates. To accomplish this aim, a modified version of Zimbardo's scale was used. A total of 268 pharmacy students showed participation in this study. A higher participation was observed in respondents in the age group of 21-25 years. Our findings demonstrated a high level of CA among first year pharmacy students. Overall, it was seen that Chinese female students were at a high risk of CA. Race, age, gender and year of study were found to the factors associated with CA.
