THESE PEOPLE ARE A BUNCH OF LIARS, WHAT DEGREE CAN YOU GRADUATE WITH WITH 100K SALARY STARTING BESIDES A MD?

THESE DO NOT WANT YOU TO GO IN, AND KEEP THE SHORTAGE GOING.

THIS IS THE REALITY, YOU CAN GET A JOB, YOU WILL BE STARTING AT 100K+, WHY DO YOU THINK SO MANY SCHOOLS ARE OPENING UP?

Sadly many schools are opening up because it is quite profitable. There are folks out there that believe that a shortage still exists and are willing to take out loans for the $30 to 40K tuition per year. Head over to the pharmacy forums at SDN and you will see threads discussing about future of the profession, saturation, and those diploma mill schools.

Is the pharmacist shortage over?

100K salary? Maybe 5 years ago. I graduated 2 yrs ago with 200k student debt from a private pharm D. school. It took me 4 months to land a full time job. I am certainly not earning 100K. My spouse on the other hand is in computers. He is earning 100K+ with flexible schedule. Pharmacy is a dead field. The dispensing aspect of pharmacy will be replaced by ATM machines (it already happens in urgent cares). If I get to do it over again, I would go into computer science or become a nurse practitioner.
