    Before joining the PharmD program at the University of Michigan College of Pharmacy, my understanding of the role of the pharmacist was limited to independent community pharmacy, retail pharmacy, and inpatient pharmacy. I didn’t truly understand that statement of what it meant to have a wide range of career choices.

From the well-known career option of retail pharmacy to a more unseen option of health informatics, pharmacy truly does have a wide array of career options for pharmacy students to explore. One career option that I would like to explore would be…

    As mentioned before, drugs are perishable products even though the expiry date is long. Inventory management of those is difficult and pharmacies know how many types of medicines (and units) they can sell and adjust their orders. However, a prescription drug is different. Doctors prescribed it to patients and pharmacies sell according to this. Different manufacturers create the same core ingredient in those drugs, leading to a competition influenced by lobbying.

    but I wondered how they worked inside my body and how those small white pills could kill the “bugs” that made me sick. That curiosity heightened my interest in pharmacy.

When I grew a bit older, I started to know more medications, including their functions, dosages, precautions, and side effects. What I went through during childhood has shaped my…
