Why Pharmacy Matters
Over the last 25 years, the field of pharmacy has expanded from a profession mostly focused on preparing and dispensing medication to one that provides a broad range of health-related services. This is great news for anyone considering pharmacy as a career — it’s a profession that’s now practiced in a wide variety of settings. Be it community pharmacies, hospitals, veterinary pharmacies or the military, the opportunities are nearly limitless. So whether you’re interested in working with people in your neighborhood, soldiers, veterans, doctors, or scientists in a lab, you have many choices.
If you’ve never thought about a job in the pharmacy field, it may help to ask yourself some key questions about the things you like to do and your personal goals. For example, are you interested in science and math? Do you enjoy working with other people? Are you a good communicator? Are you looking to do something meaningful? If you answered "yes" to any one of these questions, then pharmacy could be the perfect fit for you.
