The Pharmacy Students Guide to Becoming a Pharmacist

Ever wondered what you could truly achieve with your pharmacy degree before entering the workforce? Or how you can attain the necessary information for success as a pharmacy student, all in one place? Better yet what your representative pharmaceutical bodies can do to help?

Well this handbook has been developed, within the context of community pharmacy to outline the responsibilities, roles and processes involved in seeking employment. This handbook also outlines the terms of employment, relevant legislation and rates of pay as they apply to the community pharmacy sector. The ‘Get The Job’ section is a good reference for pharmacy students interested in all fields of the profession, not just those entering the community pharmacy sector. Further to this there is information on each pharmaceutical professional body and what they can do for you.

This is your ultimate guide for all things pharmacy.
