COMMUNITY PHARMACY JOBS / JOBS IN COMMUNITY PHARMACY

Approximately 70% (from PharmJ) of new pharmacy graduates enter the field of  community pharmacy - most going to the chain retail drugstores.  Community pharmacy is defined the practice of retail pharmacy as it serves a community.  Community pharmacy can include the retail chain drugstores, although many consider community pharmacy to be independent retail outlets owned by individual pharmacists.

Community pharmacies usually consist of a retail storefront, with a pharmacy where medications are stored and dispensed. The pharmacy dispensary is subject to pharmacy legislation; with requirements for storage conditions, compulsory texts, equipment, etc., specified in legislation. Where it was once that case that pharmacists stayed within the pharmacy compounded/dispensed medications; there has been an increasing trend towards the use of trained pharmacy technicians while the pharmacist spends more time communicating and consulting community pharmacy patients.  With this consultation and imparting of knowledge, pharmacists have evolved into the primary health professionals who optimize total medication management to produce positive health-outcomes.

There is a requirement that all pharmacies must have a pharmacist on-duty at all times it is open. It was once the case in many areas where there also a requirement that the owner of a pharmacy must be a registered pharmacist. This latter requirement has been revoked in many jurisdictions, such that many retailers (including grocery stores and mass merchandisers) now include a pharmacy as department of their store.  See the links below for more information on community pharmacy.
