Health Science Education II - Pharmacy 

Pharmacies dispense prescription medication to customers or health professionals. The two primary career paths are pharmacy technician and pharmacist, whom typically work in retail pharmacies or hospitals. This is a high-growth career path as new advancements in medicine are created for our aging population that is living longer.

Pharmacy professionals measure amounts of medication for prescriptions, and package and label them for customers.  They collect and enter customer information into their computerized medical records, and work with insurance companies to facilitate payment. Pharmacists consult with patients on health matters and answer any questions their customers have.
