I'm hanging in the balance as to choice of physiotherapy or pharmacy as career path.
"Torn", you could say.
Yes I've contact faculty directors and basically been given green light for admission application to either.
My concern regarding pharmacy is,
1) 5 year program vs 3 year physio
2) And this is the main one - (I realize I had another thread on this recently but didn't get sufficient clarity before it was locked) - working hours;
As a pharmacist, is it actually necessary to work 5 days typical 8 to 9 hour day (sometimes 10, depending I assume)?
Can you simply roster yourself to do 2 or 3 days?
See my lifestyle is not expensive. I just need money for the basics.
Hell I try to stay green so don't even use a car.
Costs are low, and priority is do muh job, not let muh job do me.
Feedback I got in the other thread was, community pharmacy is taxing, long hours, stressful - not the easy life.
Is there any way to make it the easy life?
Just schedule hours so you don't have to do as much, albeit for a smaller paycheck?
Or is it more so, if your contracted to a position, expect to do the 40 to 50 hour work week, no exceptions.
As always, your feedback is profoundly appreciated.
