how to become pharmacist

Career Pathways in Pharmacy is a comprehensive, step-by-step e-guide that provides an overview of licensing and certification requirements for pharmacists in the U.S., with state-specific resources. You can download it directly from this post and refer to it as often as necessary.

This free e-guide is part of the Career Pathways series by WES Global Talent Bridge. The series outlines strategic planning for internationally trained immigrants seeking work in, or related to, their established professional fields once they relocate to the U.S.

Can This E-Guide Help You Find Pharmacy Work in the U.S.?

Career Pathways in Pharmacy can help you understand the steps involved in becoming a pharmacist and obtaining new pharmacy credentials in the U.S. It can also direct you to the appropriate licensing bodies and organizations along the way. You will find advice to guide your career, whether you are just starting out or have already started your career as an internationally trained pharmacist.

Alternative Paths to Success

If the process of earning your pharmacy license in the United States seems too difficult or costly, this free e-guide also explains how you can use transferable skills for alternative career opportunities. That way, you can look at jobs that are related to pharmacy, but do not require the same licensing.

Career examples include:

  • Pharmacy Technician
  • Pharmaceutical Corporation Department Manager
  • Pharmaceutical Laboratory Analyst/Technician
  • Pharmaceutical Scientist

Once you choose a path, the guide will help you find state-specific information about achieving your new goal.

Career Pathways in Pharmacy also describes the roles and responsibilities of pharmacists, common job titles in the field, and the educational requirements and certifications necessary to qualify for different positions.
