Pharmacist profession

Among many specialties, the profession of a pharmacist is rightfully considered one of the most attractive, promising and in-demand professions.

A large portion of these costs are spent on drugs that are invented, researched, manufactured and sold by pharmacists.

The origin of the term “pharmacy” refers to antiquity. The Egyptian word “farmaki” means "granting healing or security", i.e. pharmacists help people to be healthy! Therefore, high demands are placed on the profession of a pharmacist.
