First of all....

  Okay.  Let me start by letting you know that I am a young pharmacist.  I am in my mid twenties, and have recently had the pleasure of completing my coursework in the field of pharmacy.  Let me just sat that the profession itself is a very dynamic profession that will challenge you and allow you some autonomy to be all that you can be (if you will).  However, the point of this blog is to let everyone in on a day in the life of a young pharmacist. This blog is not intended to inflate the egos of those that are pharmacists, in fact it may do the opposite. This blog will however give you an idea of what it is like to wear the white smock and feel like a schmuck.
  Like I said I am young.  I like to have fun, be goofy, and enjoy life.  I have come to realize that being a pharmacist does not allow you to do any of those things.  Instead, being a pharmacist allows you to be stressed out, get yelled at while being "professional", at feel like you could have a heart attack at any moment.  So, if you are interested, I will take you through many scenarios that may make you rethink what pharmacy is as a whole.  At the same time, you may rethink your decision to use certain pharmacies.  anyway lets begin.....

    I am not a pharmacist but our technology may impact the industry and I stumbled into this world of pharmacist speaking out that I didn't know existed. It is wonderful, witty and knowledgeable. I went all the way back in your posts to see where this whole thing started.

    My company is Gema Touch, unfortunately if you Google it, you will not find another related to the healthcare application just yet. I'd love to hear more about your story, pains, etc. and get your feedback on some of the tech's we are working on.
