What kind of non-traditional job opportunities do Pharmacists have?


I am going to be a senior in High School this year and am very interersted in the Pharmacy programs at Ohio Northern University and University of Findlay. The tuiton at both of these schools is mind boggling and I am worried about the student loans I am going to have when I get out of school. What other opportunities do Pharmacists get other than the traditional family pharmacy, can I do research or are there other areas I can get into with this degree.

Also I heard that the pharmacy program is one of the hardest that can be taken. Is their any advice you can give me as to how to get through the next six years without becoming completely stressed out and is it really worth it.

Hospitals, long term care pharmacies, drug consultants, just call any pharmacist or a guidance counselor at a college in your pharmacology and ask them.

I work in a Nursing home and we have pharmacists come in and review medications for interactions, conditions, dietary changes and their effects on the medications and whether or not drugs are continueing to be effective. It's really neat to pick their brains.

I hear Purdue University in my home state of Indiana has a great pharmacology program and stores like walgreens offer well paid internships.
