As some of you know, I am continuing to explore careers, and this thread is going to be focused on what the title suggests. First and foremost. What does being a pharmacist entail? What would I be doing day to day? What is the annual income. The reason I say this is because it seems that A LOT of new Pharmacists are getting paid 80-100k out of school. If that's true, that's pretty good. Is there any overtime you can put in to make more? Would I be working in a lab or at Rite Aid? Or is that up to me to decide? Which is better? With the 100k income, will that go up as I become more experienced or will it plateau at around 125k or so? --- Does this job involve a lot of Chemistry? I know all medical careers involve science but as a pharmacist, will I have to go through heavy doses of Chem during school? Lastly, how long does it take to become fully licensed? If there are any accelerated programs out of HS (like BS/MD), don't list them because I do not have the grades.
