If I get a bachelor's of health science, and choose not to pursue a career in pharmacy, what other options are there?
I want to (or at least I think I want to) go into a program for a PhD in pharmacy to be either a pediatric or hospital pharmacist. I plan to either get my bachelor's of health science first, then apply to a graduate program for pharmacy or go into a 6 yr program while also obtaining my bachelor's of health science. With that said, if I choose to not pursue my path of pharmacy, what can I do with a bachelor's of health science? I don't like direct contact with patients due to my squeamishness (meaning I don't want to be a nurse or doctor or a PA). What career options do I have that are still high-paying? #health #career-paths #career-choice #hospital-and-health-care #healthcare #pharmacy #PhD
someone who focuses on helping to spread health information through various media forms. There are so many other awesome careers out there, but you just need to do your research and see what seems to best fit you.
Karina recommends the following next steps:
Health science encompasses issues that deal specifically with health using interdisciplinary courses involving both natural and behavioral sciences. A health science degree can be a step in pursuing a career in medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, health /mental health counselors, public health, pharmaceutical rep, research or as a technologust such as radiologic technologist.

A Master's in Public Health might be something to look at as opposed to pharmacy.
