Specialty Pharmacies Are Expanding and Evolving Nationally

Specialty Pharmacy ConsultationHaving worked for almost three and one-half decades in the fields of Pharmacy staffing and consulting, I still find it amazing to watch the growth of Pharmacy Specialties and the Specialty Pharmacy Job Market evolve, expand and basically explode! As the roles and responsibilities of a pharmacist’s duties continuously increases, so does the creation of new job positions and work opportunities. Today there are virtually new pharmacy specialties and sub-specialties in our profession being created, expanded and redefined in an unprecedented growth of job positions and opportunities.

Pharmacy graduates in the previous generation basically had one primary professional role question to answer: Do I spend my life working and practicing our “craft” in a Hospital environment or a Retail pharmacy practice? Today the question has virtually become filled with limitless special roles and the field is being redefined at a rate that has never been seen before.
