A mail-order pharmacy is a pharmacy that dispenses medications by mail. This type of pharmacy can be a convenient option for patients who live in rural areas or who have difficulty getting to a brick-and-mortar pharmacy. Mail-order pharmacies typically operate through a central warehouse or distribution center. Our team of dedicated recruiters at Quad Recruitment are always on the lookout for pharmacy professionals looking to work in a mail-order pharmacy.
