Pharmacist only make 60k/year? OMG I thought pharmacist all make 6 figures?
Paul Tran Pharmacist (3 месяца назад)
Yeah they all make 6 figures but after taxes its usually less than six figures. Check out my "how to read your paycheck video" https://youtu.be/ImFPYRvl4VE

Paul did congress ever passed the provider status ? What is your opinions on pharmacy schools ? they has doubled in the last 10-15 years, yet more of them continue to open each year. With NO provider status for Pharmacist ! We are done ! The growth of pharmacists to be only 3% over the next 10 years. That is roughly 9100 new jobs over the next 10 years. During this time, roughly 150,000 students will have graduated from pharmacy schools and that is assuming no new schools open. THAT IS ALARMING !!!!! $200k+ in loans and no job growth !! Pharmacy schools are hungry for profit, and to maximize that, some schools will take just about anyone regardless of GPA or PCAT as long as they're willing to sign away $200k+ in loans. THAT IS AN UNEMPLOYMENT CRISIS OF MEGA PROPORTIONS

Is pharmacy school hard ? I'm interested in going into pharmacy school

I've been a pharmacist for over 20 yrs. I've worked for the big box stores & owned my own store. Be aware that retail is about numbers. There are good jobs and bad ones. You will stand on your feet for 10 to 12 hrs a day, some days with no lunch. You eat when you can. Retail will require weekends. Third party payors now control the profession. Dealing with these insurance companies can sometimes be stressful. There is a lot more pressure in this field than most realize. The pay now is very well. Work a little overtime & your income is almost as a physician. I don't regret it, but I want everyone to know that some days being a RPH is a tough job.

Minnesota passed a law that says that pharmacists and pharmacy techs are entitled to a 30, minute lunch break if they work over 6 hours. They also must be able to use the bathroom every four hours, and may not work over 12 hours. Minnesota passed the law to cut down on pharmacy errors. Pharmacists may also close the pharmacy during their lunch break. https://www.revisor.mn.gov/rules/?id=6800.2160 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVtrxWNyNuI

I paid my room/board/tuition in 6 years. Could have done it sooner but I bought a new truck. The only help I had was the National Guard but they only paid <10%. I graduated in '04. I have spoken to new grads and I believe this guy is right. It is going to take a longer time to pay off your shit proportionally. The rate of pay is not keeping up with the rate of tuition increase. I went to Purdue which is comparable to other pharmacy schools maybe ever so slightly cheaper. Be prepared to dig in and be in debt a long time if this is your life path. Buy used cars, live light, pay that shit off. Most state laws do not allow you to miss loan payments or they suspend your pharmacist license. So its pretty important.

I play pro football, and I'm looking to do pharmacy school as well. Is this possible?
Kenginsama (8 месяцев назад)
Are grades in pharm shool matter since your end goal is NAPLEX? I mean even though u don't do well in classes, but you study harder on the license test.
lovefunkrockmusic (27 дней назад)
Kenginsama Grades matter if you pursue a residency in a hospital or fellowship in a industry, but work experience matters also.

Hello Paul Tran! Are you Vietnamese? Your name has the word "Tran"...^^ I'm a Vietnamese phamacy student. I really like your video. It gives me a lot of interesting information...
Cnbc Capital (1 год назад)
that makes no sense. there is ZERO chance that a single pharmacy tech will invest for 30 years straight,especially right out of high school. And since most people can't resist buying a new phone, eating out, lending $ to friends/family, hairstyles, clothes, trips, etc, and live by the polar opposite principle " you can't take it with you", your analogy is baseless. Even as much as you preach savings ratea and investing to rphs, how many will "pay themselves first"? Heck, i didnt get it until 2012, and if you are anything like me , you looked at the gains since March,2009 and had your "aha" moment, like the rest of us
Paul Tran Pharmacist (3 месяца назад)
And again I am not preaching go be a pharmacy tech. I am talking about overall numbers. Make sure you crunch numbers before paying all that tuition, unless of course your parents paid it for you and you graduate debt free.
Paul Tran Pharmacist (3 месяца назад)
Well I do know 2 pharmacy techs in the Seattle area that have 4 houses and they are in the late 30s and early 40s. It is possible if you are knowledgeable in finance and investing. Its just extremely rare individuals, but you can't say its impossible.

Why is the salary for a pharmacist 60k? Isn't it 100k?
Filmon Tewolde (1 год назад)
Another Kahn Get hands on experience what a day to day will be like as a Pharmacist. Usually people have this ideal picture in there head how things are versus how they are really like. Type into Youtube Engineering Truth Pharmacy. I believe it is really not worth the stress and debt , but others believe it is worth it. I will breakdown the cost assuming some debt from undergrad. Average undergrad comes out with 24K. Assuming you did well in undergrad with a great GPA. You get into a school debt ranges between 150k-300k. Average pharmacy school debt is about 150k. Assuming you didn't do a residency you went straight to work after pharmacy school. Now the cost: 24k+interest (undergrad)+ 150k+interest(pharmacy debt)+opportunity cost. This is tax bracket for Cali: 40% tax for 100k income. Assuming you make 100k right out of pharmacy school. 40% tax on 100k drops you down to 60k. Student loans is $1450/month that comes out to be $17,400/year. That drops you to $42,600. Now you have rent for a 1 bedroom apartment it will cost you $1200/month that comes out to be $14,400/year that drops you down to $28,200. Then you have other expenses like food, car, clothing, medical care, ect. These numbers will vary depending what state you live in . What school you go to and how long you are in school. You will not become rich being a Pharmacist. It will take many years before you break even with someone you never went to college at all. Pharmacy is rapidly changing I see in the future that pharmacists will no longer exist as a career do to technology. Type into YouTube pharmacy robots.

hey Fili did u go to one of them? like do u know how it works?? If i am not mistaken u are from Ethiopia or Eritrea. I just need some advice because i am from there too and thinking if the struggle is worth it u know?? I hate debt, another name for modern slavery.
Filmon Tewolde (2 года назад)
+Superoxide Dismutase They actually take home less 60k u still have student loans which averages around 1,300/month.

+Thomas Coy Check out these videos in youtube peter schiff college,#outwithstudentdebt,marty nemko college. Tell me what u think.
Scarlet Stark (2 года назад)
+Filmon Tewolde Yes I just learned college is a scam. Most employers prefer 5 years of professional experience over a degree. I would of just gone to trade school and come back for a degree if there was an opportunity to waiting for me.

there are no jobs for pharmacists in United States! Don't be stupid and waste your time and money!

whats your full name?
Brett Shore (2 года назад)
I don't like the numbers you used for the salaries because the average pharmacy tech salary is $30,000 before taxes compared to the average pharmacist salary of $115,000 and I understand that you estimated taxes and expenses, but that would leave a tech at about maybe $15,000 compared to a pharmacists with about $75,000. Please elaborate. Thanks! I do appreciate the time and effort you put in.

Going to Pharmacy School or phD in Biomedical Engineering?
Денис Шин (2 года назад)
The good thing is that pharmacists in the US have higher entry-level salaries than pharmacists in the UK. However, the con is that it takes 8 years to become a pharmacist in the US; whereas, in the UK it'll take you 6 years, at most, to become a qualified pharmacist in the field. Also, since most students in the US will probably graduate with an immense sum of debt after they're complete with pharmacy school; it'll take them quite sometime to pay it off. Your call.
PistolStar21 (2 года назад)
I did the numbers myself to see at what point a tech and a pharmacist would be even financially after taxes AND student loans and came to a similar result. Which is why I don't get why people wan't to become pharmacists with all that hard work if you can just become a tech at day one and start making money.

not a pharmacist, however, i just graduated from an accredited pharmacy technician program from canada where we are a regulated profession with licensing fees and exams and all. here in canada, we have a very wide scope of practice. definitely interested in understanding the way a pharmacy works in america. it seems quite different from canada.

Hi my name is Crystal I am currently in my senior year of high school. I've always wanted to become a pharmacist but after reading so many horror statistics and forum's about difficulty obtaining a job in pharmacy I don't know if it's worth it. Do u believe that pharmacy school is still worth getting into with such difficultly finding a job after the degree has been obtained?
Filmon Tewolde (2 года назад)
No it is not worth it type into youtube engineering truth is pharmacy also google the truth about being a pharmacist.
P xO (2 года назад)
Employment of pharmacists was projected to grow only 3 percent from 2014 to 2024. That percentage is very very low. More people are moving towards doing a residency for more job opportunities.

. I'm finally wrapping up my first year of pharmacy school with finals now. I think one of the hardest things for me was finding new ways to study material I've never seen before. Haha. Anyways, all of the time I wonder if I will continue to think that all of these years devoted to pharmacy school will still be worth it in a few years...so it's cool that you made this video! It's nice to know you're still alive!! :D

Hey! I watched you about two years ago and had a recent conversation about you randomly and saw you posted a video...funny how things happen. Well, I decided not to go into pharmacy school and opted to be an Occupational therapist instead. So, I'm working on those prereqs to get that master's. Good to know you're making videos again tho! Btw, still love the catchphrase. =)

Hey man, I just wanted to say thank you for posting all of these insightful videos over the years.  My freshmen year of undergrad (three years ago), I decided I wanted to pursue Pharmacy School, and at the time it seemed like a far-fetched idea.  But this past weekend, I received an acceptance letter from my #1 school of choice for pharmacy.  Its been a crazy ride getting to this point, but your advice has made it leaps and bounds easier.   Thank you again and take it easy.

If you don't mind me asking how much does a pharmacist make right out of school. A cvs pharmacist. And is it hard to find a job
Daphne Chen (3 года назад)
Hi Paul :) I've been watching your vlogs during the past few weeks, because i was stuck in choosing medicine or pharmacy. I got accepted into med school and pharmacy school, I also got scholarships for both medicine n pharmacy. By watching your vlogs, my confidence and motivation got boost up and I found my great passion in pharmacy, so I opted for pharmacy and will be starting my year 1 in this coming August. thank you :D

I am still a pre-Pharmacy student and I just finished my 3rd year on Friday (i made it through ochem!!) but i am not looking into becoming a D.O. and not a pharmacist anymore. I have gained so much more confidence in my self over my 3 years in my undergrad and I really do think i can make it through medical school. I have so much support from my professors and class mates.  Your videos have helped me a lot so thank you so much and I hope you are enjoying being a pharmacist!

well im going to stick with law enforcement since the debt is not worth it. my friend is 20 years old earning 50k a year as a cop without no overtime. With overtime and detail work + all the benefits hes earning 100k+ with no degree and living with his parents so he has no debt. Thanks for opening my eyes and showing me that I shouldnt be burden with the pharmacy school debt

I just got hired as a (retail) pharmacy assistant, eventually to train as a pharmacy technician. I am 20 years old and I have not been to college yet. However, I know that if I AM going to go to college, it should be soon while I'm still young. But I always question if it's worth it or not.

Anyway, keep it up and it's nice to see your vlogs back again!
