Why do you want to be a pharmacist??
Meet John. He is looking to become a pharmacist. Pharmacists are educators, whether it be for
the public, prescribers, or other health care professionals. No matter what area of pharmacy
you end up in, education will more than likely be involved in your day to day job duties.
Here are 5 reasons to become a pharmacist: – Pharmacists are the last line between patients
and medications that can be deadly if taken incorrectly. 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. This means
being able to do calculations to look at inventory turnover, profit, acceptable margins, and
other business calculations. Why do you want to be a pharmacist? Let us
