Day in the life of
Pharmacist – Anh Evardo
I have been a pharmacist for 9 years and I currently work in a clinic-based setting, helping physicians and other healthcare professionals manage patient’s chronic disease states, such as hypertension and diabetes. I truly enjoy my job as I work closely with these providers to make evidence-based recommendations as well as consider each patient as an individual. My job is unlike the retail setting as I work Mondays through Fridays from 9 am to 5:30 pm. I am off every weekend and major holiday. The pay is also above average for most pharmacists, especially given my years of experience.
For my background, I graduated with my Doctor of Pharmacy and completed a Post-Graduate Year 1 (PGY1) and a Post-Graduate Year 2 (PGY2) training. Completing this extra training allowed me to apply for jobs that required more clinical knowledge.
dispense drugs prescribed by physicians and other health practitioners and provide information to patients about medications and their use. May advise physicians and other health practitioners on the selection, dosage, interactions, and side effects of medications.
