    Hey Im taking Radiololgy in school now im almost finished with my degree. Would it be hard to switch to pharmacy? Anyone here ever been in radiology. Would Pharmacy school..or pre-pharm for that matter, be more difficult??

    I'm working in Ultrasound right now and jut got accepted to 2011 Pharm school. Pre-pharm is definitely doable, just basic science. I'm sure you'll do just fine. Pharmacy will definitely be more challenging than Radiology. (It is a doctorate degree after all) I haven't started my pharm training yet, so I can't tell you if it's hard to switch over. I don't think I'll have any problem though. Work hard and you will succeed.

    R u doing the Radiology tech program, working towards being a radiologist (specialist doctor) or perhaps a science degree in radiology? I guess the answer to your question differs depending on which one of those program you're doing.

    Kay51, what djquiksilver is trying to figure out is, are you in a radiology tech program or are you in medical school.

    In order to become a radiologist, you need to goto medical school plus 5 years of residency. Why would you back out and go into pharmacy after spending that much time in school. Plus you would make about 5 times less.

    I have a feeling by radiology school she means "radiology tech" school.

    Yeah, considering she asked if pre-pharm would be more difficult, I have to concur.
