A pharmacist’s primary goal is to give pharmacological information to patients, prepare medications and offer multidisciplinary health expertise to customers and coworkers. In detail, a pharmacist is responsible for interpreting physician orders, assessing therapeutic compatibilities with certain drugs, dispensing medication, packaging and labeling medication, organizing pharmacy technicians’ work flow, preparing pharmaceuticals, participating in clinical health programs, training staff and students, ensuring that all is compliant with federal drug and health laws, removing outdated medications, protecting patient information, adhering to protocols, administering infection-control medicines and working smoothly with a team to ensure the best health of each patient. A pharmacist must know how to quickly and accurately analyze information, communicate effectively, adhere to FDA health regulations, comply with legal requirements and show great attention to detail.
Pharmacist Education Requirements
In order to qualify as a pharmacist, prospective pharmacists must first acquire a bachelor’s degree in a related field, such as biology, chemistry, or calculus. Then, the prospective pharmacist must pursue a graduate school that offers a Doctor of Pharmacy degree, which often takes four years to complete. In this time, pharmacists will be prepared for the patient-care, technical and chemical aspects of the day-to-day pharmacy job. Hands-on training is often included in pharmacy school, which helps to familiarize students with the proper way to handle medicines, interact with patients and work in a thorough and compassionate environment. The combination of both schooling and hands-on training prepares pharmacists for pharmacy in the real world. Then, the pharmacist must pursue additional training through either a residency or a fellowship, which can take one to two years. Once obtaining the proper licensure by passing an exam from the National Association Boards of Pharmacy, the pharmacist will become licensed to practice pharmacy in any type of hospital, medical facility, or retail location.
