Pharmacy Manager Duties
A pharmacy manager is a more administrative role than a traditional pharmacist, giving them the duties of a pharmacist with the additional duties of a management position. Some of the primary responsibilities of a pharmacy manager include managing a group of pharmacists, ensuring that drugs are compounded and dispensed properly, logging all data into a computer, reviewing all drug utilization practices, ensuring the smooth functioning of the pharmacy in a hospital or retail environment, directing the work of others below them, planning and accomplishing team goals and ultimately reporting to a department head. The pharmacy manager must be experienced in a leadership role, with the ability to think quickly and communicate effectively in order to solve any issues issues that may arise. The pharmacy manager must also have experience working with prescription dispensing, in order to understand what practices and policies need to be followed.
Pharmacy Manager Education Requirements
A pharmacy manager is required to have a bachelor’s degree as well as a higher degree in pharmacy after attending post-graduate school. Then, the pharmacist manager must have completed a full residency as well as hands-on training from a recognized medical facility. After receiving licensure from the national board, the pharmacy manager is licensed to work in the area of pharmaceuticals. Often, a pharmacy manager will have between five and 15 years of experience as a pharmacist before earning a title as pharmacy manager. Managers must have experience working with patients, understanding what drugs are involved in prescription, knowing the proper ways to dispense, package, and label prescription drugs and having a knack for communication. Pharmacy managers assume a leadership role, which makes them a mascot for the pharmacy they are in charge of.
