Andrew’s Answer

Yes, if you want to be a pharmacist or pursue any medical field you should earn a four year college degree. You can try to enroll full time or take classes while working. Some classes can be taken online. You may decide to even go beyond an undergraduate degree and pursue a graduate degree if you are interested in research. A PharmD may also be of interest. Good luck!

London Doyoung’s Answer

Going to college is never a bad answer, but you should set a clear goal on what you want to achieve. If you want to stay in the medical field, nursing is also an option which doesn't require college. Yet, if you want to go to a med school, then you would need to go through an undergrad, then a med school. 4 years of college is not a short period of time, and it could be burdensome if you don't take out loans.

Before you go, think about what you want to learn about and how you would like to see yourself in 10 years from now. Taking time to think about what you like and finding yourself could prevent you from wasting 4 years, or it could be the best 4 years of your life. Everyone is different, and it is not always the best to default to the answer to go to college without a specific goal in mind.

Short answer is yes, off course. Longer: you will see practical application of p'col in clinical situtions. You will get a broader education base which should assist in communication and understanding. You will have a greater chance for work/life balance.

If you are considering continuing in that career pathway I would absolutely recommend continuing your education as you can build on your knowledge base and make your career whatever you so choose to. It is never a bad thing to further educate yourself in a subject you are interested in learning more about.
