Pharmacists practice in a variety of areas including retail, hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, drug industry, and regulatory agencies, including productions of medicine, formulations and drugs.
It is easy to get a thousand prescriptions, but hard to get one single remedy - Chinese proverb.
Pharmacists distribute prescription drugs to individuals. They also advise their patients, as well as physicians and other health practitioners, on the selection, dosages, interactions, and side effects of medications. Pharmacists monitor the health and progress of patients to ensure the safe and effective use of medication.
Compounding the actual mixing of ingredients to form medications is a small part of a pharmacist’s practice, because most medicines are produced by pharmaceutical companies in a standard dosage and drug delivery form. These are the conventional roles for pharmacists.
Scope: Qualified Pharmacists can look forward to rewarding career opportunities in Pharmaceutical Industries in marketing, sales, research, quality control, production, testing & evaluation or other areas. Blood and plasma products, haemoglobin, plasma, serum, clotting factors, antigens, and antibodies are new and untapped areas.
