I am just trying to do some research on different areas of pharmacy I am interested in after graduation, and was wanting to get some estimates on average salaries of pharmacists in various settings (not the main factor obviously, just curious). I know retail is one of the highest, if not highest ($120,000/yr or so?) and hospital can start off in the $95,000 range, but what about compounding pharmacists, veterinary pharmacists, and industry positions? I have searched various sites but only seem to find 'clinical pharmacist salaries' or 'retail pharmacist salaries'. I also try to research compounding pharmacist salaries, but keep getting values around $40,000/yr. It surely isn't that low is it? Any advice and input is appreciated!
