Prepharmacy

Like to count pills? Actually this is a field that is very well paid, and offers flexible hours with little "on call" time. Not bad at all! At the health profession advisor conference, I heard talk of Walgreens and CVS offering to hire new pharm school grads on the spot for astounding salaries. Of course this is a career for the fastidious and careful; and you would need to know a good deal of physio/biochemistry I imagine to become more than just a pill counter and benefit your customers. I would recommend biology or chemistry as a major, or in the future, a biochemistry major.  -CS
