I hope to go to retail for a little while, just to get the experience, and then go on to the economical aspect at a pharmaceutical company.

My goal as of now is to graduate with the lowest GPA possible, get a job working mail order or 7-on-7-off night shift somewhere so i don't actually have to ever talk to the general public.

I like to set lofty goals...

Two of my friends who are in Rho Chi are having a competition to see which one of them can graduate with the lowest GPA of any Rho Chi member. Once you're in, they can't kick you out!

What do you need to be a Rho Chi member? Does it very from school to school?

I have always wanted to work in a critical care setting and then eventually specialize as an oncology pharmacist.

Once I graduate, I'd like to work in retail for a little while. It's an easy way to make money, and I'll owe Walgreen's two years for their scholarship. If I get sick of retail, I'd like to do clinical research.

I seems my goal is to accummulate so much student loan debt that I will be forced to work a 7 on 7 off hospital staff job, and work a fulltime retail job in between so I can afford to eat.

Yeah, that's why its important to make sure you enjoy the work, or at least some little aspect of it. Otherwise you'll go crazy! In the end, the money makes no difference, what's left of it becomes someone else's.

That's interesting, as I'm interested in compounding. I was wondering if you are looking at a specific residency that relates somehow to compounding?

There's a course offered in North America to obtain a compounding specialty, we had a presentation on it by someone who runs a compounding pharmacy.

It's not a residency as such, there's just a national club for compounding pharmacists and they hold that course - i'm not sure how often, annually perhaps.

But, to be honest the "art of compounding" is relatively rare.

www.pccarx.com

their calender of events is here:
http://www.pccarx.com/calendar.aspx


it appears they offer their basic 3 day training monthly...
and boot camp for students is offered once a year...

you can also pay them to come in and do it at your school instead of making the trip to houstin

My goal right now is to make through Pre-Pharm. requirements for USN. Then when I'm at USN then it'll change to making it through Pharmacy school, then etc... :scared:

i`ll most likely be working in retail between my school years anyway, since we get close to 4 months off in the summer. after graduation, i might go into clinical research.

I've been a tech in a retail pharmacy for about 3 1/2 years and I just don't know if I can stomach any more retail after graduation... I'd like to do a residency. Possibly in pediatric or psychiatric pharmacy.
Or something with geriatrics...I knew a pharmacist who worked in several different nursing homes; she had X # of patients assigned to her and she evaluated their medical treatment on a regular basis; she did this without a residency.
I'm afraid if I did retail to make the extra money at first, I would sort of lose a lot of the practical knowledge learned in school and never get out of it! :eek:
