What kind of money do pharmacists make and How much college?
    #2565347 - 04/15/04 08:59 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

how many years college do u need to take and how much money do you make if you are a pharmacist? it is pretty interesting to me and seems pretty damn easy. And not just because it deals with drugs or nothing since i pretty much dont do drugs (i drink once or twice a week and use marijuana on the weekends)

6-8 years depending on the type of degree(you can get a pharm D).
They make decent money, but most tell me it's a boring job.

17 years of school? I don't know of any degree that requires that amount of schooling. You can be a pharmacologist in 8-9 years which is above a pharmacist.
At Purdue were I got my undergrad degree(psychology) there pharmacy program is 6 years I think. Its one of the top pahrmacology schools.

Heres a little general info

It took my dad about 10 yrs but he had 4 kids and my grandma to support...My mom was making a small amt of money as a secretary to help. He also worked a full time job so i have a lot of respect for my dad. I think the worst part of the job is all the longass hours on your feet....it used to kill me back when i was a teenager.

If you go to school for 17 years you better make about 10 million dollars a year . Imagine the student loan amount for 17 years of school. :tongue: :tongue:

Yeah if you go full time it takes about 6 year. My pharmacist is still in her 20's. She's single and pretty also. Too bad i'm married, old, burnt and have kids. :tongue:

When I first started at Purdue I was a pharmacology major. I was going to be a psychopharmacologist. I settled for psychology/pre-med.

Most of my friends from Purdue that became pharmacist complain that they go through all that schooling and gain all that knowlege and they spend 90% of there time counting pills. They pray for people to ask questions so they can put their knowlege to use.

I believe the starting salary is over 90K based on a news story that recently spoke about the shortage of pharmacists.

Yeah plus pharmacys are open 7 days a week. The nice thing about clinical psychology is you make100k+ and only work bankers hours. I look forward to working. It's wierd that i'll be over 40 when I get my first job(legal that is). :wexican:

So as a clinical psychologist will you be able to write scripts?

Nope.
Well in some states their is a trial going on letting C. Psychologists prescribe certian meds. Theres a push to get prescription rights for clinical psycologists in the US. It would work kind of like a nurse practitioner. Lord nows we take enough pharmacology and medical classes, that and 9 years of school. If it does happen we'll just be able to precribe certian meds like antidepressents, Benzo's, amphetamines and other meds related to metal health.

As it is now most C. psychologists work close with a doctor and if they want somebody on a med they just call the doctor who calls in the script. I did a internship at a mental health clinic a couple years ago and the psychologist there would give the MD who worked there a list of names and meds and the MD would just call them all in.

I'm interested in working in psychedelic research/therapy, though so prescription rights are not realy important for me.

It only makes sense that with all those years of education you would be able to prescribe MAOI's, SSRI's, Benzo's, and the drugs commonly used to treat mental health issues. you wouldn't be dealing with high blood pressure or other common medical issues in your line of work anyway.

Yes it would make sense. In the states doing the trial the clinical psychologists are doing like a extra year of school so they can learn to spot any health problems that could be complicated by the meds. Its funny cause we already learn most of that stuff. In fact the pharmacology class i'm in now is 3/4 med students and the rest clinical psychology students.

I'm a psychology undergrad right now.  And I want to get my Masters so I can practice at a counseling level, but I think my grades aren't good enough.  I'm probably going to graduate with a 3.0  Chinacat, do you think that's good enough to make it into a Masters program?  I had a 1360 SAT so I think the GRE won't be too hard at all.  I'm really worried that I won't be able to do anything with my BA in psych and it is stressing me out quite a bit.. :sad:

It also would save the patients money. Instead of having to pay a psychologist and a doctor. Alot of times if a psychologist puts a patient on a med the doctor charges them 40 or 50 bucks and never see's them. :thumbdown:
