How to Prepare for Pharmacy School: A Step-by-Step Guide READ MORE: https://pharmacyschool.us/2016/09/03/how-to-prepare-for-pharmacy-school/
Students who know how to prepare for pharmacy school are more likely to be informed and prepared for the application and schooling process, ultimately leading to greater success after school.
Get experience... early
Experience can mean a few different things. Students can gain experience through shadowing opportunities, on the job training and community service, to name a few. 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. Pharmacists are responsible for understanding complex processes within the body and calculating complex drug mathematics, so an aptitude in these two fields is very beneficial. 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.
