Be a Pharmacist and help people live better, healthier lives!
Pharmacists are medication experts who enhance patient care and promote wellness. You will use your professional knowledge as a pharmacist to prepare and dispense prescriptions, ensure medicines and doses are correct, prevent harmful drug interactions, and counsel patients on the safe and appropriate use of their medications. As a pharmacist, you will have unique and specialized expertise about the composition of medicines, including their chemical, biological, and physical properties, as well as their manufacture and use. Other health care professionals will rely on you to select and administer medications that offer the best results and quality of life for a particular patient. As a pharmacist you may prepare personalized medications, participate in patient rounds at the hospital, reduce the spread of infections, conduct research or clinical trials, or focus on a specific patient population or disease state (e.g., diabetes, heart disease, asthma, HIV, and pain management).
The majority of Pharmacy graduates are employed as pharmacists. These divide into two main groups: hospital pharmacists and community pharmacists. Other options include research, whether in universities or in industry. Pharmacists are highly employable all over the world – they often appear on governmental lists of professions to be given preferential treatment in immigration processes – and a vanishingly small amount of Pharmacy graduates are unemployed. A pharmacist’s starting salary may well be higher than that of a junior doctor and rises rapidly with experience. To round this off, pharmacists have excellent job security – making this a very appealing path to take for anyone with the aptitude.
