“Your pharmacy educational path at a glance:
- Finish high school or obtain your GED
- Undergrad is a must. Four years with a focus on science such as biology, anatomy and physiology, and chemistry and organic chemistry.
- You’re not done after four years. You have to get your doctorate in pharmacy, aka Pharm.D.
- But first, before pharmacy school, you’ve gotta take the PCAT (aka, the Pharmacy College Admissions Test).
- After you’ve completed all the required education, you’ll have to sit for and pass the North American Pharmacist Licensing Exam (NAPLEX).
- Take a second exam, which is state specific, the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE).
- Some states require internships.
- Want to specialize, you can spend one to two years in a clinical residency.
