The Profession of Pharmacy

Expanded opportunities for pharmacists in patient care roles and therapeutic decision-making have evolved during the past three decades. The traditional role in drug distribution has increasingly expanded to incorporate the concept of comprehensive medication management, a philosophy which gives pharmacists the responsibility for assuring drug therapy that achieves defined outcomes and improves a patient's quality of life. Pharmacists in contemporary practice are trained and expected to work collaboratively with the patient and the patient's other health care providers to assure that drug therapy is safe and effective.

The ability of the pharmacist to play an active role in drug therapy is recognized at both the state and national levels. In recent years, several states have passed legislation that allows pharmacists to initiate or modify drug therapy, through collaboration with a physician or through independent authority. In Michigan, pharmacists may prescribe under the delegated authority of a licensed physician.

Pharmacist Licensure

The graduate of the four-year Pharm.D. curriculum earns the degree Doctor of Pharmacy and is eligible for the NAPLEX examination to obtain licensure as a pharmacist. Licensure, either by examination or reciprocity, is available in all states and the District of Columbia.

Internship is a professional and practical experience under the supervision of a preceptor in a pharmacy approved by the Michigan State Board of Pharmacy, beginning after the student has been licensed by the Board of Pharmacy as an intern. Students must obtain a Michigan Internship License when they begin the professional curriculum of the College.
