Most patients trust their pharmacists more than they trust their doctors. - Pharmacy workers are not only seen as health care providers in the community, but also a source of wisdom and respect. Many people will seek out the wisdom of their pharmacist in times of need with extremely personal problems due to the trust and respect that is built by serving your community. - While some are busy helping keep their community healthy, others are busy working for drug companies to develop new medications that will save lives worldwide. - Pharmacists are also some of the top leaders in medication development in the United States. - In addition to monitoring effectiveness and safety of drug therapies, pharmacists are often also responsible for monitoring the business side of the pharmacy.

What are the different types of pharmacists? http://pharmacyschool.us There are many different types of pharmacists in the field of pharmacy. Some types of pharmacists are more well-known than others, largely due to the level of interaction with patients. Community Pharmacist Community pharmacists are some of the most widely recognized pharmacists and significantly contribute to pharmacists being among the most trusted healthcare professionals. These different types of pharmacists work in pharmacies that dispense prescription medications. You probably recognize them as the people in white lab coats working behind the counter at your local drug store. These pharmacists are responsible for ensuring prescriptions received from doctors are accurate and appropriate. Hospital Pharmacist Hospital pharmacists are pharmacists who work within a hospital setting. This can look very different depending on the type of hospital and magnitude of pharmacy program. Hospitals can have a mixture of pharmacy services where pharmacists spend part of their time on a hospital floor and part of it in the central pharmacy. Each area has different responsibilities and the way these responsibilities are fulfilled can vary widely. Ambulatory Care Pharmacist Ambulatory care pharmacists work in doctor’s offices alongside physicians and even in community pharmacy settings. These positions often require training after pharmacy school. These types of pharmacists have a lot of interaction with patients in both the clinic setting and the community pharmacy setting. Ambulatory Care Pharmacists working in a clinic can help reduce patient burden on providers while practicing at the top of their licensure to ensure great patient care. Managed Care Pharmacist These different types of pharmacists generally work for an insurance company or health plan. Managed care pharmacists are typically responsible for reviewing prior authorizations (PAs), which are a tool used by a health plan to manage the use of certain medications by those it insures. When reviewing PAs, pharmacists use criteria and clinical knowledge to determine if there is a better medication option or not.

Pharmacist Job Outlook: Finding a Job after Pharmacy School
 
02:52
Pharmacist Job Outlook: Finding a Job After Pharmacy School. The Pharmacist Job Outlook has been miscommunicated, to say the least. When prospective pharmacy students search for descriptions of a pharmacist job, they often find outdated and misleading information. The Bad News The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports pharmacist job loss over the next 10 years for a particular sector: retail, mail, and specialty pharmacies. The Good News While pharmacist jobs are decreasing in retail, mail, and specialty pharmacies jobs will be increasing in almost every other field of pharmacy, particularly those jobs which are more clinically advanced. The Opportunity for New Pharmacists Why is the pharmacist job outlook so great? Well, there are a few key things to highlight: • The practice of pharmacy is always changing Pharmacists are not doing the same things they did decades ago. “Pharmacist” no longer only means the person who mixes your drugs behind a counter. Now, to be a pharmacist can mean anything from mixing life-saving IV nutrition to electronic prescription checking. • Diverse Job Opportunities With jobs predicted to decline in one area of pharmacy, this message is essential. While it would be nearly impossible to list all of the potential pharmacist jobs, here are some areas of pharmacy you may not have heard of:  Academia (educator type of role)  Veterinary pharmacy  Nuclear pharmacy  Industry (clinical trials, prescriber education, drug sales)  Independent pharmacy  Consultant pharmacy  Managed care (healthplan or insurance company) • Location, location, location Location has a huge impact on the pharmacist job outlook. Larger metropolitan areas may have different job outlooks depending on the type of pharmacist position, but in general rural areas have fewer pharmacists to fill the current needs, not to mention growing needs. • People will always need medication The most important thing about the pharmacist job outlook is that people will always need medication. Even as medicine advances, medications are central to treatment and management of almost every disease or condition. In summary, the pharmacist job outlook is bright as pharmacists move forward in the advancement of the profession. No longer limited to one kind of practice, but asked to join other medical professionals in patient care. For more information, visit our website or follow the link in the description.

When shadowing, try to shadow at least 3 different kinds of pharmacists to get an idea for the variations that exist in pharmacy practice. If pharmacy is a field you are still interested in after gaining first-hand experience, then consider the following: 1. Take courses most closely aligned with pharmacy courses This means math and science.

That being said, pharmacy is so diverse that even people stronger suited to arts and literature types of material can still be successful. 2. Get involved This can mean many different things, but preferably something health sciences related. Many high schools and even Universities have “pre-med” clubs, which can include field trips to health care facilities, discussions about various jobs, or volunteer opportunities centered around medical care. 3. Do your homework Students preparing for pharmacy school should be looking at what coursework it takes to meet the requirements for pharmacy school, and be thinking about where to take the courses. There are many options including community college, State Universities, private Universities, and more. Most pharmacy schools require similar components of pre-requites ahead of pharmacy courses, which is about 2-3 years worth of schooling. In summary, following these three steps will help students wondering how to prepare for pharmacy school. Each step should be tailored to your interests and abilities, because above all else preparing for pharmacy school is about identifying and pursuing your passion.

What are the Best Pre-Pharmacy Schools? Read More Here: https://pharmacyschool.us/2016/08/12/best-pre-pharmacy-schools/ Before beginning pharmacy school, students will need to complete pre-pharmacy studies. Even in the early acceptance programs, students do not begin the professional studies portion until after the initial coursework is complete. Affiliation with a Pharmacy School (or not) Pre-pharmacy coursework can be completed in a variety of ways:  Community college  State Universities  Private Universities  Associated with a School of Pharmacy Many Universities offer pre-pharmacy as a study, and generally they are closely connected with a nearby School of pharmacy. This is typically about two years of coursework. Some students wish to complete their pre-pharmacy studies at a local community college, or receive scholarships to private universities, and are able to structure their classes so they can meet the requirements. Curriculum Content Not all pre-pharmacy studies are created equal. Program content can vary depending on method chosen to pursue pre-requisites, University attending, and how closely they are aligned with a School of Pharmacy. Students should evaluate the curriculum outlined in pre-pharmacy programs against the required curriculum for programs they are interested in. Extracurricular Opportunities When thinking about what are the best pre-pharmacy schools, another very important factor to consider is the availability of extracurricular opportunities. During the pre-pharmacy years, students can take advantage of being involved in pre-pharmacy clubs, on campus organizations, and chances to volunteer. These are great opportunities for building a network of peers and gaining valuable life-skills. Location and Cost This factor will be different for everyone. A good place to start can be looking at schools nearby of interest, and looking to see if they offer a pre-pharmacy program. If students are wishing to move away for school, they can do similar evaluations by whatever location they are interested in. Many students also choose to pursue financial aid or scholarships. If a student qualifies for financial aid or is awarded a scholarship at a particular school, it would be worthwhile to also look at their curriculum options. Pre-pharmacy is an important step in the journey to Pharmacy school; take your time and choose a pre-pharmacy program that fits you!
