Pharmacists advise patients on a variety of issues related to their medication, including dosage, storage, drug interactions, side effects, and more. They also manage procedures for mixing, packaging, labeling, and distributing medications to ensure proper quality, use, and disposal, both in the pharmacy, and by patients in their own homes. In addition to keeping careful tabs on logistics and the details of keeping a pharmacy running smoothly (like placing orders, maintaining stock, and staying up to date on the latest codes and regulations), pharmacists also have to provide valuable customer service, advising customers on healthcare supplies and use. Oftentimes, they work closely with doctors and other healthcare professionals in order to meet customers’ needs by clarifying possible misunderstandings between doctors and patients, evaluating the quality and effectiveness of various drug regimens, and having a detailed knowledge of generic versions of more costly branded medications.

In order to succeed, pharmacists need to have a broad knowledge base that spans many different fields and skill sets. For instance, they need to develop a mastery of medicine, dentistry, math, and science (e.g., chemistry, biology, computers, mathematics), all of which are key to dealing with patients and healthcare. Pharmacists also need to develop skills in customer and personal service, as well as in therapy and counseling. These “soft skills” are necessary in order to make patients feel supported and to ensure that their needs are met. Finally, given the complex legal implications of many medical policies, pharmacists need a solid grounding in the English language and a basic understanding of law and government in order to ensure that they are keeping their pharmacy up to code and are not unknowingly violating any regulations. Pharmacists need complex reasoning skills and the ability to clearly express their thoughts in ways that a non-specialist can understand. For this reason, being able to speak, read, and write in English is very important. Almost all pharmacy positions require graduate study, including a master’s, Ph.D., M.D., or J.D., depending on the position and the state.

Below are some employment trends for Pharmacists:

  • Median wage: $61.58 hourly, $128,090 annually
  • Employment: 314,300 employees
  • Projected growth (2018-2028): Little or no change (-1% to 1%)
