SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I'm still thinking about whether or not I want to be a director of pharmacy for a hospital or a pharmacy manager for any kind of pharmacy at some point. I've talked to a co-director of clinical pharmacy, and it seems like she usually takes students as a preceptor to teach them on rotations and residencies. The other co-director does more of administrative and finances role and works with human resources. Both are a little bit of something I would like to do later on, but I was wondering how much experience I would have to gain first as a pharmacist before doing something like that. Is it usually worth it to go into these kinds of upper-level positions? The two co-directors I've talked to say they enjoy their jobs very much, but I know it might not be for everyone.
