SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I was wondering why countries with living standards either comparable to or higher than those in the United States don't seem to either pay or use pharmacists remotely as much. In tiny Singapore, which as a substantially higher per capita income than the US, pharmacists are worth about 1/8th of a doctor. In Japan, they're worth about 1/4 of a doctor. Both of those countries have healthcare systems that are ranked higher than America's at large, so is this a harbinger of trouble for US pharmacists in the future?
