The PathMatch Guide to

Pharmacy

A Day in the Life

A Pharmacist specializes in the usages of medicine and has a thorough knowledge of composition of drugs. Pharmacists are often asked to choose and administer drugs that lead to the healthiest and best results for a patient. Pharmacists typically spend a lot of time measuring drugs for prescriptions and calculating the correct dosage amount given a patient’s gender, age, and weight.
