Pharmacists help distribute medication and treatment to people spanning a diverse range of needs. They are knowledgeable, active learners that are consistent in their work and strive for accuracy. They usually work in a lab setting at a clinic, hospital, or pharmacy with a team or under the supervision of a physician. They are analyzers, makers and healers that are solution-oriented, organized, and flexible problem-solvers.
Becoming a pharmacist requires long-term study so it is best to start working towards this career path early on. Most employers will only hire candidates that have a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D) degree from an accredited 3 or 4-year program, as well as obtain a North American Pharmacist Licensure and pass the The Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Exam, which covers pharmacy law. The job market for this role is projected to grow 6% by 2026.
