Pharmacy and pharmacologyWatch
Probably the second one which I assume is pharmacology. But doesn't doing pharmacy have better job opportunities? And does pharmacy include aspects of pharmacology?
You will find, however, that there is a cross-over between pharmacy and pharmacology - a sector of pharmacy known as industrial pharmacy - where you can work as a pharmacist for a pharmaceutical company, such as GSK, AstraZeneca, Novartis, or other companies, and work as a researcher.
Absolutely, pharmacology is one of the major basic science subject areas that are studied in a pharmacy degree - pharmacists need to know the effects of drugs (positive effects, as well as side effects) and how they work in the body.
I would say that pharmacy has better job prospects than pharmacology, simply because pharmacy is a regulated healthcare profession, and also because it has more career sectors: community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, industrial pharmacy, academic pharmacy, and regulatory pharmacy. Pharmacists can work as pharmacologists, but pharmacologists cannot work as pharmacists - you NEED a MPharm (or equivalent) degree in order to call yourself a pharmacist.
