According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for a pharmacist with a doctoral degree (PharmD) is $124,170.
The role of the pharmacist has changed immensely. Pharmacists don’t just fill prescriptions, they assist the health care provider to insure a positive outcome for their patients. They are expected to advise both their patients as well as physicians about the dosages, interactions, and side effects of the prescribed medication. Constant expansion of health care programs and the increasing need for quality pharmaceutical care insure a continuing demand for well-educated pharmacists. Graduates will be highly sought after by varied employers.
