What qualifications do I need to become a Pharmacist?

To embark on this fulfilling journey, there are specific qualifications and educational requirements you'll need to meet before you are licensed to become a pharmacist. The process typically involves the following qualifications:

Complete a Bachelor's Degree

The first step to becoming a pharmacist is to complete a bachelor's degree. This can be in any field, but most pharmacy schools prefer applicants who have a degree in a science-related field, such as biology, chemistry, or physics.

Apply to Pharmacy School

Once you have completed your bachelor's degree, you can apply to pharmacy school. Pharmacy school is a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program that typically takes four years to complete. You will need to complete The Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT) which is a requirement for most pharmacy programs.

Complete a PharmD Program

Pharmacy school is a rigorous program that includes coursework in pharmacology, pharmacy practice, and pharmaceutical sciences. You’ll also need to complete a formal internship at a pharmacy during your program. The hours needed in your internship will depend on your state’s licensing requirements.

Take Licensure Exams

Pharmacists are required to take 2 licensing exams after successfully completing a PharmD program. You’ll need to take the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam (NAPLEX) and either the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Exam (MPJE) or a jurisprudence exam specific to your state. Your state’s licensing board will let you know which exam you need to take. Once you’ve passed, you’ll have everything you need to start applying for pharmacy jobs.

Regardless of having extensive pharma knowledge (which your education will guarantee you have), how quickly you progress your career as a pharmacist is based on a handful of other skills that you’ll nurture from learning and practicing as a pharmacist. To help answer this question of what a pharmacist is and what they do, here’s a few skills you’ll need to succeed. 

Career advancement in pharmacy requires a diverse range of skills, some acquired through learning and practice, whilst others come naturally. The specific skills needed vary depending on the type of pharmacist you become. To accelerate your professional and personal growth in this field, below highlights some of the key skills you’ll need.
