Hi. Im still in the extremly hard process of deciding which course to do next year at university. There are a few courses i have in mind, and i am still doing some research on each, and their potential career paths. What made me consider pharmacy is the fact that i want to be working with people, and i do get satisfaction from helping people. I also really liked organic chemistry in my highschool course, and from what i gather, chemistry is a vital component to the study of pharmacy. I have also heard that it is quite common for pharmacists to end up owning their own business, which is essentially what my main goal is, whatever career i choose. Im just wondering, are there any pharmacists or ex-pharmacists who use these forums, or anyone who knows anything about the career? Id really appreciate any input at all about what you think about a job as a pharmacist, career prospects etc. Are pharmacists generally well paid? Thanks in advance, Dan. PS. I live in West Australia, if that makes much of a difference.
