What Is a Pharmacist?

Pharmacists are healthcare professionals who specialize in the proper use, storage, preservation, and administration of medicine. They can guide you on how to use medicines, and tell you about the possible side effects of what you take. They fill prescriptions issued by doctors and other health care professionals.


Pharmacists participate in the research and testing of new drugs. Pharmacists work in pharmacies, medical clinics, hospitals, universities government institutions, etc.


What does a pharmacist do?

People have been using plants and other natural substances as medicine for thousands of years. However, the practice of professional pharmacy became its own distinct professional field in the mid-nineteenth century.


Pharmacists dispense prescription drugs to individuals. Pharmacists also provide advice to patients and other health professionals about the use or re-use of medicines, the correct dosage of the medicine, and possible side effects. In addition, they can make sure that a drug won't interact badly with other medications you take or health conditions you have.


They can also provide information on general health topics such as diet and exercise, as well as products such as home health care products and medical devices.


Compounding (the mixing of ingredients to make medicines) is a very small part of the modern pharmacist's practice. Today, pharmaceutical companies manufacture drugs and deliver them to pharmacies, where pharmacists measure out the correct dosage for patients.


Education and Training

To become a pharmacist in the US, a person needs a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree from an institution that is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).


Although admission requirements vary by university, all PharmD programs require students to take postsecondary courses in chemistry, biology, and physics. Additionally, pharmacy programs require at least 2 years of undergraduate study, with most requiring a bachelor's degree. Students must also take the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT).


Reasons to see a pharmacist

Pharmacists are one of the most easily accessible healthcare professionals. Every pharmacy has a licensed pharmacist, and you can talk to one without an appointment. Some reasons to see a pharmacist include:


Answering medical and drug-related questions

Pharmacists are able to answer most of your medical or drug-related questions. They can explain what the medicine you're taking is for, how you should take it, and what to expect during the medication.


Filling your prescriptions

Once you get a prescription from your doctor, you can take it to the pharmacy where the pharmacist will fill the order. If you fill all your prescriptions at the same pharmacy, they can better track your medication history and provide you with a written history if needed.


Dispose of unneeded medications safely

If you have any unused or unwanted medications, it's best to get rid of them so they don't end up in the wrong hands. Taking them to a pharmacy is the best and safest way to dispose of them.


Simple health check

Pharmacists are qualified to perform simple health care procedures such as taking your blood pressure and temperature, checking your blood sugar levels, and checking your cholesterol. They can also diagnose everyday ailments such as colds, flu, aches, pains, cuts, and rashes, just to name a few. They will then be able to recommend the right treatment or tell you if you should see a doctor.



You can also get your annual flu shot and other vaccines in most states at a pharmacy. Most of the time you don't need an appointment, and the whole process only takes a few minutes.
