Career in Pharmacy

Are you looking for a job in the healthcare industry? Do you want a career with a lot of responsibility? Are you intelligent, organized, and methodical? If so, you may want to think about a career in pharmacy.

Pharmacists create and dispense prescribed medications. This job necessitates a huge amount of responsibility, because a pharmacist has access to a number of very dangerous and potent drugs. Pharmacists work at health clinics, hospitals, and wherever pharmacies are located, such as department and grocery stores.

To become a pharmacist, you need to spend a number of years in school. As an undergraduate, you'll need to take a number of science courses including chemistry, biology, and anatomy. It's generally very difficult to be accepted to a post graduate pharmacy school. If you can get in, you'll spend a number of years learning how different chemicals affect the body and how certain chemicals react when blended with other chemicals. A good pharmacist will be able to tell whether two separate medications, when taken together, will create harmful side effects for the patient. The reward for this lengthy education process is a lucrative annual salary.

Those who want a career in pharmacy but don't want to spend all that time in school tend to become pharmaceutical technicians or laboratory technicians. Pharmaceutical technicians assist pharmacists in preparing and measuring medication for patients, but aren't qualified to disperse medication without a pharmacist present.
