Expanding Pharmacy Specialties:
Having worked for over 25 years in the fields of Pharmacy staffing and consulting, it is amazing to see the growth of Pharmacy Specialties evolve and expand. As the roles and responsibilities of pharmacists continuously increases, so does the creation of new job positions and opportunities. Today there are virtually new 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: Hospital or Retail pharmacy practice? Today the question is virtually limitless and the field is being redefined at a rate that has never been seen before.
In an attempt to place perspective on the opportunities available, HCC has put together a list of specialty pharmacy practice areas that we deal with in regards to consulting and staffing on a frequent basis. Although by no means complete, it helps to illustrate the expansion of pharmacy opportunities that pharmacy specialization has created:
– Adult Medicine & Geriatrics
– Ambulatory Care
– Cancer & Oncology
– Clinical Pharmacy
– Critical Care
– Cystic Fibrosis
– Emergency Medicine
– Endocrinology & Diabetes
– Immunology & Transplantation
– Infectious Diseases
– IV Pharmacy
– Mail Order Pharmacy
– Nuclear Pharmacy
– Nutritional Pharmacy
– Pain and Palliative Care
– Poison Control
– Woman’s Health
Additionally we could list specialty jobs that are being created in Managed Care, Drug information, Economics & Informatics and the Pharmaceutical Industry itself.
