Practice of Pharmacy

What is really the best practice of pharmacy? Community, Hospital, Manufacturing or Regulatory?  For me, hospital pharmacy but of course it depends on what areas your heart and mind functions best. Different person have different preferences. Different practice offers unique chances of exploring the world of pharmacy. If you’re a Pinoy Pharmacist who plans to practice abroad, Community or Hospital Pharmacy are the choices you might consider. Set your goals right. Don’t venture on fields that are not helpful in achieving your plans as Pharmacist. What I’m saying is do not accept job that are not related to your profession. Yes, some of these jobs offer huge monetary units and will definitely fatten your wallet but the question is, ‘Will your experiences be counted when you finally want to practice as Registered Pharmacist?’ I’m afraid not all time. Many hospitals would love to employ Pharmacists who already have background (at least 2 years) as Hospital Pharmacists. It is the same in community or industrial pharmacy. This is very true especially when you are applying for jobs abroad.

Again, just set your goals. Define what you want. There are many fields in practice of pharmacy that might suites your personality and talent. Ask other Pharmacists. I’m sure they are very much willing to give recommendations.
