How a Bachelors in Pharmacy Opens Several Doors For Your Career

A Bachelors Degree in Pharmacy is an interesting career path right now. The reason for that is the perception associated with the course that one can only be a pharmacist after graduation is different from the reality, where several career options open up for you. In today’s competitive job market, it also depends on a student’s willingness, attitude and growth mindset.

A graduate of pharmacy is equipped with the following skills upon finishing his/her degree:

  • Knowledge of facts and theories relating to the design and manufacture of medicines
  • The ability to communicate effectively with patients and other health professionals
  • Production of pharmacy-specific scientific documentation
  • Operation of pharmaceutical instrumentation
  • Knowledge of the law and ethical concerns relating to the supply of medicines
  • Analysis of medicines

A B.Pharma graduate can continue their higher education with a Masters in Pharmacy or a Masters in Business Administration, which is also an increasingly popular choice among Pharmacy graduates. However, once a bachelors degree is obtained, a pharmacy student often chooses to start his/her professional life. Some of the several career paths include jobs in Pharmaceutical Industry/ Clinical research organizations/ Biotech companies, Marketing/Sales jobs at Pharmaceutical companies, Pharmacist in hospitals,Retail/Wholesale Pharmacy business, Teacher, etc.
