What Do Pharmacists Do?
Pharmacists ensure patients get the right medications in the correct doses, keep track of all medications patients take to prevent harmful interactions and offer advice to physicians and patients to help manage their medication therapies. Pharmacists also have the authority and ability to administer immunizations and help patients manage chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Where Do Pharmacists Work?
While many pharmacists choose to practice in independent, chain or supermarket pharmacies, others practice in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, home health care organizations and even veterinary clinics. They also work in the pharmaceutical industry, law enforcement and government, as well as private companies and universities.
How Much Do Pharmacists Make?
Average annual starting salaries of our recent graduates range from $105,000 to $122,000, depending upon where they practice. Few degrees match a pharmacy degree’s versatility, value and return on investment.
