Hi yashpatel,

We have info career info for prospective pharmacists right here! http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... c001.shtml

Note that, at least in the US, becoming a pharmacist requires a doctoral degree after completing an undergraduate (bachelor's) degree. So a good first step might be to figure out what undergraduate major would prepare you to apply to pharmacy programs and be enjoyable for you, and then what high-school classes would prepare you well for that major.

Hope that helps,
Amanda

Nicole,

I do not believe we have any pharmacists as Experts at Science Buddies. Please see Science Buddies' policy on interviews: viewtopic.php?f=35&t=5681 . I would suggest going to your local pharmacy and speaking with a pharmacist there.

Good luck!
