    Are there any opportunities for jobs with medicinal chemistry where I can have human/patient interaction like a pharmacist?

    I think you would need to do further qualifications to become some sort of health professional instead

    so if I did complete medicinal chemistry, at the end to have a human interacting job, id need to complete a completely different degree? so I'm better off by just doing the pharmacy degree then?

    If you want to be a pharmacist yes, i think medicinal chemistry is more a degree for lab work
