Pharmacy practice and profession blog
All posts from: January 2014
Nobody needs to be surprised at how passionate I feel about the current employment crisis within the pharmacy profession at the minute. But I thought I’d explore alternative careers for my latest blog post. One of the most irritating assertions I hear is when someone wrongfully claims that a pharmacist only really has three places to go after qualification - community, hospital or industrial pharmacy. There are various alternatives available to pharmacists.
Over the last two weeks or so, I’ve tried to compile a list of things I’d like to see happen in order to protect and improve the pharmacy profession for the twelve months ahead. But in all honesty, I’ve struggled. Because there is only one issue that really dominates the profession for me at the moment - the looming crisis on what we need to do to protect the welfare and enhance the growth of the careers of graduates with a pharmacy degree.
