Pharmacists are medical professionals who receive extensive schooling in chemistry, anatomy, physiology and pharmacology in order to distribute prescription drugs to patients. Pharmacists perform a variety of work on a daily basis relating to this function and may choose to specialize in a particular type of pharmacy, such as intravenous medicine, oncology, nuclear medicine, geriatrics and psychiatrics.

A pharmacist is an important medical worker who aids physicians, dentists and veterinarians by dispensing appropriate medications to patients. Some pharmacists may also specialize in pharmaceutical research, or in marketing and sales of particular medications for a company. Many in this field work in drug, department or retail store settings, and many more work in hospital settings.
