Pharmacist Jobs

Pharmacist Job Overview

Becoming a pharmacist is a great career option for those who have math and science skills. Even in a struggling economy, pharmacists are always in high demand. There are thousands of private pharmacies and pharmacies inside of hospitals and retail stores across the country, and they require skilled employees in order to keep them running smoothly. The main job requirements for a pharmacist include dispensing medications to patients, discussing drugs and possible interactions with patients and physicians and helping to improve the quality of each patient's life.

Successful pharmacists typically start by working in pharmacies while in school, so they can gain experience and exposure to the field. Pharmacy technicians can work as cashiers at pharmacies and act as liaisons between patients and the pharmacist. Pharmacists may work closely with Medical Assistants or nurses.

Pharmacist Job Education Requirements

Pharmacists must earn a bachelor's degree in a related field, such as chemistry or general science. They must also earn a Pharm.D. degree from an accredited program, then pass two different exams in order to become licensed to dispense medications. This degree typically takes four years to earn, after which the candidate can begin working as a pharmacist. A pharmacist must have a close eye for detail and the ability to work quickly in high-stress situations. A simple addition mistake can result in serious harm to a patient, so being detail-oriented is an absolutely necessary skill.

Pharmacist Job Market

Pharmacy jobs are projected to increase up to 14 percent by 2022, which makes it a promising career for those who are interested in this field. Similar to other healthcare fields, the demand continues to grow, as the population ages and more patients have health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act. As the demand for prescription medications also rises, the skills of pharmacists will be more important than ever. Pharmacists can provide counseling and advice to patients on how they can save money on prescription drugs and improve their overall health through preventive measures.

Pharmacist Job Salary Information

The median salary for a pharmacist is $116,670, which is similar to other positions at similar education levels. Those working in government healthcare facilities and hospitals typically earn more than those in retail or standalone pharmacies, since they might require a higher level of skill and the ability to work under pressure. Pharmacists in hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers will also mix medications used by anesthesiologists to put patients to sleep for surgeries.
