Zac’s Answer

The possibilities are endless! Most traditionally, you can work in a retail or hospital pharmacy in why we call a “dispensing role”. Where you’re filling, checking and verifying prescription drug orders before they’re sold or administered to a patient. You can also work in a hospital as part of the medical team where you follow patients much like MDs or DOs do and provide recommendations about a patients medication therapy. These roles typically require one to two years of residency training after your PharmD program.

You can work for insurance companies, drug companies, in nutrition support, oncology, solid organ transplant, HIV, specialty pharmacy (think high cost medications), travel health medicine (vaccines and travel prescriptions for people going out of country), long-term care, consulting, medication therapy management, pediatrics, cardiology, IT, formulary management, sales, pharmacoeconomics, wealth management and many others.

Sikawayi’s Answer

Hello Kavion, thank you for your question. There are several options for you most pharmacy students first choice is to work in a hospital because it does seem to pay more in most states but mostly, they want that job for the experience. The second option is to work in in a drug store such as Walgreen's Rite-aid, CVS places like that. Best of luck
