Things You Should Know Before Choosing Pharmacy as a Career

Are you interested to become a Pharmacist and seeking information about becoming a Pharmacist then this is the perfect place to start.

Spending more than 10 years in pharmacy field as pharmacist including hospital pharmacist, retail pharmacist, medicine manufacturing (Industrial side of pharmacy) as well holding position as consultant pharmacist has given me quite a clear understanding of pharmacy career, its starting programs and what it really takes to become a Pharmacist.

According to a recent survey, 37% pharmacist were seen somewhat satisfied by their selection of Pharmacy as future career. Where final results reflected the most easily recognizable perception of community pharmacy was changing while hospital and industrial area was tagged as competitive and researched base. More people wanted to be community pharmacist followed by hospital pharmacy.

Pharmacist in beginning
You will need to make a decision as to what type of pharmacist you want to be. Whole pharmacy field can be divided into four main branches.
  • Those who care
  • Those who sale
  • Those who prepare
  • Those who make pharmacists
Those Who Care
These kind of pharmacist are available in hospital and clinical settings. They receive prescriptions either online or manual written on piece of paper for an ill patient. Where they are challenged to justify these medicines according to the condition of patient, long time benefits, disadvantages and some other deep pharmacy science. Including checking interactions of medicines with each other if taken together, or with food or sometimes some active ingredients are not suitable for specific race (scientifically) and they are more prone to some danger.

Caring Pharmacists from third world countries try to be an expat in other countries and mostly looks forwards to opportunities by simply obtaining a foreign pharmacy license. Majority prefer UAE.

Those Who Sale
These people are found in either medical stores in third world countries, Pharmacies in first world countries and as medical representatives. All of them in one way or another are pushing items of their sale target to doctors (in third world countries only)  or in retail they prefer to sale more to rich customers. Those who stand in shops, medical store or pharmacy they provide medicines to people for their betterment.

Internationally there are lot opportunities available for a Pharmacist to work as Retail Pharmacist, Community Pharmacist or seek a good salary pharmacist jobs.

Those Who Prepare
These are quite artistic kind of people and are mostly found in multinational firms manufacturing big batches of medicines. But initially you will see them taking more interest in laboratories during pharmacy programs. They are called somewhat experts in understanding chemical reactions. In contrast to this expertness many of them end up in following some specific recipes of products from a SOP in a MNC firm. Only few found their ways towards Research and Development Department where every expert needs to work.

Those Who Train
By teaching, educating, grooming them as real pharmacists. Have you ever seen people being surprise to see you pronouncing so much difficult names while you take a second to show off your skills. Well this is what your teachers do and they are basically pharmacists themselves.

Although all of these designations comes with high and lows affected by ground realities. But you will mostly listen people tagging you as person who just wanted to do something in medicine or simply some will not hesitate to let you know that you was once ditched medical school.
