Types of Pharmacists' Careers

By July 31, 2013

Follow me on:

If you are interested in obtaining your pharmacy degree to become a pharmacist, there are many different types of career paths and options from which you may choose.

Most people think of a pharmacist's role as the person standing behind the counter filling prescriptions at the drug store, but there are actually many other roles pharmacists can fill in different healthcare settings from hospitals to offices, to long-term care facilities.

In addition to retail pharmacy, some pharmacists may specialize in a certain type of patient or certain type of drug therapies, such as nuclear pharmacists. One aspect that doesn't vary much is the average salary for pharmacists - most roles remain in roughly the same pay range regardless of the career path, although there may be some minor variations.
