Other job opportunities are open to motivated pharmacists. The basic diploma can be enhanced by additional training.

The management of research and development projects, regulatory affairs, scientific or medical information and pharmacovigilance are examples of positions already mentioned where knowledge of the multiple facets of the drug is essential.

Jobs that develop specific expertise are accessible to the trained pharmacist in the fields of logistics, computer science, (bio) -statistics, documentary research or patents.

Management positions or even becoming the director of pharmaceutical laboratories are also part of the possibilities that pharmacists can access. Again, the pharmacist's degree is an added value and is often accompanied by training in business management (a module is devoted to training in Marketing).
