If you get a degree in Pharmacy, can you also conduct drug testing, manufacturing, and/or research?

Asked Bethany, Connecticut

I am interested in the range of things you can do with a Pharmaceutical degree, besides actually just working in a Pharmacy. #pharmacy #pharmacists #pharmaceuticals

You can do research if you want to, you just have to apply for job with a pharmaceuticals company that do that, or any jobs that want the knowledges/ expertise of a pharmacists, you can also work at hospitals or doing research at hospitals you work at, it depend where you work and what position you are applying for

Thank you!

You can do research if you like but a pharmaceutical science degree is more suited for that than a becoming a pharmacist. You need a strong chemistry and biology background for research which you really don't get in the typical Pharm D program. Pharmacists do work in the pharmaceutical industry typically as medical liaisons presenting data to insurance companies and hospital pharmacies. Their are also a few other roles they hold in industry.
