Sometimes doctors will fuck up the name of a drug, have a typo/unreadable handwriting, add a zero to a dosage, etc, and the pharmacists are supposed to act as a check on that. Especially with all the bullshit drug names out there, it's pretty easy to bork the names if you're not paying attention.


The other thing is that they're the gatekeepers for a bunch of stuff that will get you high as a kite

Aren't most of the employees at a Walgreens/CVS pharmacy something like a "Pharmacy Tech" under the supervision of a real pharmacist?

Also, while counting random pills is no big deal, handling of things like live vaccines (and making sure customers know how to handle and take them) is a little more difficult.

I think the bigger issue with being a pharmacist these days is getting to work where you want. Being the supervising pharmacist at a Walgreens in a desirable city is rare (doubly rare for a non-shitty neighborhood in that city). Lots of pharmacy grads end up stocking the shelves at a pharmacy on a reservation in North Dakota. Who wants to get stuck out there for all of your 20s? If you pay them a ton, you might be able to convince them to give it a try.

That's just your pharmacist...they are very used to dealing with customers who never need refills because the opportunity never presents itself.

Also, I would submit pharmacists have more job roles than ever. There is quite a large role for them in regulatory review of medications, hospital and outpatient situations, research, and the business end too. Back when I was getting my MBA in the neolithic age there were a handful of pharmacists getting their MBA too so they could move into the business end. It's obviously a huge part of the economy.

In many jurisdictions, pharmacists also relieve pressure on doctors by acting as front-line healthcare workers who see patients, diagnose their illnesses, and prescribe drugs.

Pharmacists working as gps? That doesn't sound right...

Agreed. No way they're physically capable of transmitting geolocation coordinates. They lack the necessary hardware.

I'm wearing a hoodie right now. I don't feel ridiculous. It's actually very comfortable.
