What does a Pharmacist Manager/Clinical Pharmacist do?

Pharmacists are responsible for the preparation and administration of valid and correct pharmaceutical drugs or therapies to customers and patients and other forms of assistance for patients and customers.

Their work is often done at the request of a physician, but customers may also call upon pharmacists to provide their expertise and knowledge to address specific issues, problems, or needs. They are expected to interpret afflictions and symptoms and determine if an immediate over-the-counter treatment can be used or if a referral to a doctor or physician is necessary. They advise patients on the proper use or application of medication and properly communicate the potential dangers or side effects of medicines. They provide services including the administration of vaccines, measuring blood pressure, and providing temperature checks. Pharmacists also track the store’s inventory and ensure labels on the medication are correct. They check medication for flaws, expiration dates, or deterioration and properly dispose of older or defective items. Pharmacists need a doctoral or professional degree and certification or licensing.
