Pharmacy offers a wide range of career opportunities ranging from patient care to research and development. This field gives you the opportunity to know about and participate in the innovation of drugs. It provides ample opportunities in both academia and industry along with the chance to earn a stable income in India and Abroad.
Pharmacy is a booming profession and a lucrative pathway to migrate to Australia and Canada. Most pharmacists in Australia and Canada practice within the community itself as retailers or work in hospitals. Pharmacists are highly trusted professionals who are qualified to dispense medications. They have the required knowledge about most medicines and are capable of counselling to the healthcare professionals and patients and other people and the key responsibilities such as processing prescriptions, maintaining patient medication records, promoting primary health care etc.
However, to become a pharmacist in Australia, you need to be well aware of certain prerequisites. First, they need to meet the Skills Assessment as carried out by the Australia Pharmacy Council (APC) and then register themselves with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) Pharmacy Board of Australia (PBA) to get the Skilled Visa to travel and work as a pharmacist in Australia.
