Congratulations on gaining entry to a pharmacy school! It is a big achievement, but there is still more ahead before you can become a pharmacist.
The courses in pharmacy school are much more challenging than the classes in undergraduate education, but it is still important to continue to do well in class so that you can find a job after graduation. Study groups and study guides can help you reach your goals.
There are several options after graduating from pharmacy school. Some people choose to go directly to work, others choose to do a residency or fellowship. Networking becomes extremely important as you get closer to graduation.
