Career Paths after Graduation

Going to Graduate School (master/doctor’s degree) : After completing the 2+4 year-pharmacy education, students can go to graduate school in order to acquire more professional and profound knowledge about medicine. At Pharmacy Graduate School, students conduct research on a specific field of expertise, so they gain enough knowledge and experience to become an expert. After getting a degree, they work at the field which requires professionalism as in research institutes run by biomedicine industries, government, and universities.

Working at Pharmaceutical Company : Pharmacists play an important role in various areas of pharmaceutical companies. They may work at the company’s headquarters, the manufacturing department, and research labs depending on their aptitude. Tasks at the headquarters are sales, marketing, academic development, and management support. Tasks at the manufacturing department are to produce medicines of good quality, and manage the quality control through GMP and GLP. Works at the laboratory are focused on new drug development in a way of discovering potential drugs, developing dosage forms, and evaluating its effectiveness.

Pharmacists at National Organizations : They are in charge of teaching and monitoring the permission, production and distribution of drugs, and new medicine. National organizations they work for are: Korea Food & Drug Administration; Health Industry Development Institute; National Institute of Health; Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Ministry of Health and Welfare; Intellectual Property Office; National Criminal & Investigation Laboratory.

Hospital Pharmacists : Hospital pharmacists manage, prescribe, and administer medicine; give instructions about medication; and provide information about medicine to patients in a secondary or tertiary hospital. The roles of hospital pharmacists are expected to increase because clinical training is enhanced in six year-education, and accordingly the college produces pharmacists with professional knowledge and practical skills.

Community Pharmacists : After graduating from the college, students can obtain a Pharmacists’ License once they pass National Pharmacy Examination. Then, they can open a private pharmacy, or work at a general pharmacy as a manager. Community pharmacists need professional knowledge about medicine and business mindset to run a pharmacy. They take on important responsibility in prescribing and giving medicine to patients in community.
