Lori’s Answer

The quick answer is yes. Pharmacists are Doctors of Pharmacy, so becoming a pharmacist will be a lot of hard work and require effort to obtain. If you want to help people, make a good salary and like math and science, this could be the field for you.

Allison’s Answer

To become a pharmacist you need at least 2 years of undergraduate education in a science (chemistry, biology, ect) and then an additional 4 years of graduate pharmacy school to obtain your doctorate. After school you do have to take an exam to be a certified pharmacist as well. My husband went through this process and the education is long and difficult, but the career is rewarding.

Bohdan’s Answer

Destiny,

It depends on the program!


Visit this website to learn more about American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy Accredited universities and colleges:

There are programs that require some form or entry exam, some do not, some require an undergraduate degree, others do not. Check out the schools individual college admission requirement and their program breakdown for complete curriculum and requirements for graduation.


Regardless of the school there are a few exams you will have to take to become licensed when you graduate, check the requirements for the state you wish to practice in.
