Typically, a pharmacist is someone who dispenses prescription medications to patients and offers expertise in the safe use of medication. They also may provide immunizations, provide suggestions on over-the-counter medication and oversee medications given to patients. There are various types of pharmacists, including, community pharmacists who work in retail and chain drug stores, clinical pharmacists who work in hospitals, consultant pharmacists who advise healthcare facilities and insurance provides and industry pharmacists who work in areas of marketing, sales or research and development.
It is important to understand that pre-pharmacy at UNI is not a major, rather a program of study that will prepare you for admission into your pharmacy graduate program of choice.
