While the majority of pharmacists work in community pharmacies, there is an unprecedented demand for pharmacists in a wide variety of occupational settings. The requirements for admission into a pharmacy program vary. Preprofessional course requirements by pharmacy degree institution can found on the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). The link is at the bottom of the page.
Approximately two-thirds of U.S. colleges and schools of pharmacy require the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) for admission. Test dates and registration can be found on the website http://www.aacp.org/resources/student/pharmacyforyou/admissions/Pages/PCAT.aspx
