Pharmacists play an indispensable role in our lives. They are health professionals, experts in the field of medicine. They act as one of the most important checks on physician error and as a backup or alternative to GPs and hospital visits. Their skills and knowledge enable them to help patients use their medicines in the most appropriate way. The pharmacy program is science-intensive, with an emphasis on chemistry and biology. Graduates of pharmacy degrees work right at the heart of human healthcare, taking on roles relating to the design and development of new treatments, prescription and care management, and advising on the range of medical options available. With the growing healthcare sector in Singapore, pharmacy graduates will find many opportunities in this industry.
Pharmacists not only work in local community or hospital pharmacies, but also in other fields such as pharmaceutical research. Community and hospital pharmacists mainly focus on patient care, serving the medicinal needs of their patients. On the other hand, pharmacists who work in the pharmaceutical industry are involved in developing new pharmaceutical products for human or veterinary use. They are involved in formulation and production, quality control, provision of information on new products, clinical evaluation of new products, and the marketing of medicines. Thus, career options vary from hospital pharmacist to product/process development scientist, medical sales representative and even research scientist (medical). The possibilities are endless!
