SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi all, Im a pre-med student, accepted to med school for next fall, but Im thinking about switching to pre-pharmacy. Im interested in hospital/clinical pharmacy. Im thinking of switching for two reasons: 1) I feel like the workload in pharmacy school and as a pharmacist, while still considerable, will be less than medicine. Im hoping to have a 40-50 hour workweek and to be able to go home and get away from my job, and Im afraid that wont be possible with medicine. 2) While not adverse to it, Im not a huge fan of patient interaction, and I feel like as a hospital/clinical pharmacist I will have less patient interaction than as a physician in most specialities. That sums up the gist of the two reasons. Id like feedback from you guys on whether my thinking is accurate in these areas. I realize the job market for pharmacy isnt great but that doesnt concern me too much. I appreciate any input you guys have. Thanks so much.
