About Pharmacy study

Why Pharmacy studies

 

Why we study pharmacy?

Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing and dispensing drugs. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs.

The scope of pharmacy practice includes more traditional roles such as compounding and dispensing medications, and it also includes more modern services related to health care, including clinical services, reviewing medications for safety and efficacy, and providing drug information. Pharmacists, therefore, are the experts on drug therapy and are the primary health professionals who optimize use of medication for the benefit of the patients.

If you’re considering pharmacy as a career, congratulations! You’ve reached this point by realizing that you want a people-oriented profession that provides a reward in knowing that you have helped someone who is in need. The focus in pharmacy today is on the patient, determining their needs and what should be provided to best meet those needs.

As a pharmacy professional, you need to have excellent communication skills, the passion to make the patient “first”, and the ability to be responsible for your actions.

Graduates from accredited schools of pharmacy are able to prepare and dispense medication; consult with other healthcare professionals, provide medication therapy management, provide education, participate in clinical research and talk with patients about medications.

Pharmacy is a highly trusted profession and a vital part of the health care system. A pharmacy professional can have a direct impact on people’s lives and health. A career in pharmacy offers you diverse opportunities and excellent earning potential.

The ultimate goal of a pharmacy professional is to improve an individual’s quality of life. The study of pharmacy prepares you for such a life-long commitment.
