    Pharmacy in the UK is a masters, MPharm.

    In the US its PharmD which is a doctorate - so believe it is harder
    But as a result Pharmacists in the US are seen with the same regard and respect as actual Doctors.
    Plus healthcare in the US is all privatised isn't it?
    So they can charge lot more for services, which in turn boosts their salary.

    Im in my 3rd year studying pharmacy, and before Trump crawled out from under his rock, I often thought about moving to the US after - due to their amazing prospects for pharmacy.

    But I am unsure how the UK degree translates over e.g. what extra training/studying would be required etc.

    P.S. Canada>USA ------ and just as good for pharmacy.
