SHOULD YOU BE A PHARMACIST?
IF YOU HAVE
I

I

A sincere interest in PEOPLE-A desire to be part of a team
striving TO RELIEVE HUMAN SUFFERING--

IS PHARMACY IMPORTANT?

PHARMACISTS EARN HIGH PAY

The heritage of pharmacy extends back to the
beginnings of recorded history. Today the
pharmacist is more important than ever before.

Newly registered pharmacists receive one of the
highest starting salaries available to college
graduates today. For example, new graduates
entering industry in 1967 were offered at least
$6,600 a year.

Ability in SCIENCE--

IF YOU BECOME A PHARMACIST,
YOU WILL BE A MEMBER OF A
HIGHLY RESPECTED PROFESSION

An aptitude for ACCURACY and ORDER--

WHAT IS A PHARMACIST?

Fine ETHICS and good JUDGMENT-Then you probably would make a successful
pharmacist. Consider pharmacy as a career!

A pharmacist is a professional specialist in
the science of drugs. She must be knowledgeable
about the properties of a great many preparations
used in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment
of disease.

OPPORTUNITIES AWAIT
WOMEN PHARMACISTS

WHAT DOES A PHARMACIST DO?

Women are welcome in pharmacy. Women represent
about 8 percent of all pharmacists and about 14 percent of a11 students of pharmacy. As the demand for
the services of pharmacists continues to increase,
more and more women are likely to choose pharmacy
as a career.

Mrs. Marjoria B. Eubanks, with the cooperation of her three children, works part time as a private-duty nurse and still excels in
her studies at the College of Pharmacy, Howard University,
Washington, D.C. She finds great satisfaction in learning how
to compound and dispense the medicines she administers to her
patients.

Much of what a pharmacist does depends upon
what specialization is selected. A variety of
areas are open to you, ranging from pure
research to a combination of science and salesmanship. You might prefer to work in a local
drugstore, a hospital, a university, private
industry, or government.

IF YOU BECOME A PHARMACIST,
HOW MANY HOURS A WEEK
WILL YOU WORK?
Although retail pharmacists generally work more
than a 40-hour week, there is a definite trend
toward shorter hours. The workweek is less in
other areas, such as hospital and industrial
pharmacy.

THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR
PART-TIME WORK ARE GOOD
A career in pharmacy may be an excellent solution for the woman who doesn't wish to work
ful I time while her children are young. She can
work in her profession part time and later return
to employment full time, should the desire or
need arise.

Mrs. Evelyn Phi I beck, a young mother with three children, enjoys
her part-time work schedule as a pharmacist with a local pharmacy in Washington, D.C. Her coworker is Mr. Nicolas Lungociu.
