I believe a lot of the clinical faculty at pharmacy schools are usually people with Pharm.Ds + PGY2 residency or MDs for some of the basic sciences. The only PhDs I've seen are in new fields like Pharmacogenomics, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacology.I'd like to know where they're finding all the people to teach at these new schools. Yeah, I'm gonna go to school 5 more years to get a Ph.D. and cut my salary in half!
that is true. But I'm still deciding what exactly I want to do with myself - academia vs community vs whoknows. There are some very cool opportunities out there right now!Are they decent schools? I'd jump all over that...if there's one thing that pharmacy school lacks, it's decent education in Emegency Medicine.
How's second year treating you?
Whoa, whoa whoa....do I see community in there?that is true. But I'm still deciding what exactly I want to do with myself - academia vs community vs whoknows. There are some very cool opportunities out there right now!
2nd year is going pretty well, on tox right now and loving it. Presentation on drug-induced SiADH tomorrow. blah.
Community, as in non-teaching, hospital. NOT community as in retail!
Its Z..You're down right funny when you're being sarcastic. Don't know where everyone else is located rightnow. But in the east coast, there is complete saturation in the retail setting. Too many people looking for work and not enough positions to go around. I am pretty sure the college of pharmacy still claim shortage. Wish I know where they're pulling the numbers (out of their bottom!). I feel sorry for those graduating students who have a lot of school debt but no job.Oh stop it.. now that you've totally wasted your time doing worthless PGY1 & 2, you know Wags/CVS/W-Mart/Rite-Aid with their ever increasing shortage of pharmacists is the way to go...with their $30,000 sign on and $20,000 per year retention bonus + profitsharing and benefits should be around $225,000 per year.. I expect to see this trend grow for next 25 years or so.. but I'm really worried about pharmacists class of 2035..because most babyboomers will be dead.
