Pharmacists are professional scientists who practice the art and science of pharmacy, and whose expertise covers the design, development, delivery, supply, control and use of drugs. Their traditional role consist in taking a request for medicines from a prescribing health care provider in the form of a medical prescription and dispense the medication to the patient and counsel them on the proper use and adverse effects of that medication.

Pharmacists need detailed knowledge and understanding of a wide range of subjects including:

Medicinal chemistry (chemistry of drugs), pharmaceutics (formulation of drugs into efficient and acceptable medicines), pharmacology (actions of drugs on the body), clinical pharmacology & therapeutics (actions and uses of drugs in disease states), medicinal microbiology (infectious diseases and their treatment), the law relating to drugs and their use.
