Would someone please clarify the training process for pharmacy? Is a PharmD the same as a PhD? Are pharmacists required to do a postgraduate residency before they find a job? If so, what are the options with respect to residency? My girlfriend is thinking about going into pharmacy. She asked me a few questions last night about the training, but I didn't know the answer to her questions, as I'm currently in my 2nd year of med school and no one in my family is a pharmacist. Also, what's the average annual income of a pharmacist? What's the income range, and how does residency training affect earning potential? Any feedback regarding the training process would be great, given that I'm totally clueless about this topic. By the way, she's interested in being a PharmD who specializes in heme/onc. Thanks.
