    What's pharmacy all about?

    Pharmacist

    Pharmacists are the country's main experts in medicines and pharmacy is one of the fastest growing areas of healthcare.

    Pharmacists share a common commitment to improving people's lives through medicines and care and making a real contribution to the nation's health. Career opportunities are developing fast and pharmacists today can be found in many different settings including high street pharmacies, hospital wards, GPs' surgeries, walk-in centres, industry and universities.

    A career in pharmacy offers you:

    • • The pursuit of an interest in science
    • • The opportunity to join the healthcare team
    • • A choice of working environments

    What's in it for me?

    Ask yourself what kind of future appeals to you. Do you want challenges, opportunities, a chance to make a difference? 
    If the answer is “yes” then this is what you can expect from a career in pharmacy:

    • • For a start, you help people.
    • • You are an important part of the community.
    • • You are in demand wherever you choose to live. There are opportunities to work abroad because your skills are in demand worldwide.
    • • You have a good living with a secure future. Pay levels in pharmacy compare very favourably with those of other professions and job security is excellent.
    • • You have lots of career options.
    • • Your job is interesting.

    Few occupations meet all of these standards. Few meet them better than a career in pharmacy. What's stopping you?

    What's the pay like?

    Although the Society cannot advise on exact salary figures, a quick survey shows that as a qualified pharmacist you could probably expect a salary equivalent to around GHc 1,500 to GHc 2,500 (per month) depending on the area of pharmacy you choose to work in.
