Clinical Pharmacy in the Philippines

Motivated. That's what I'm feeling right now. Motivated for pharmacy profession--particularly Clinical Pharmacy.

Filipinos have wrong notion of the pharmacy profession. Many think that we are just "tindera" or saleslady of drugs. I used to think so, too. But I was so wrong.

Pharmacy is a very vast area. Pharmacists can go to the academe, clinical, hospital, industrial, business, medical (pre-med), law, research, and others. Right now the trend is geared towards Clinical Pharmacy.

Clinical pharmacists are having a hard time to be acknowledged by other health professionals. They think we are a threat to them. They don't know that we are part of the team--of the healthcare team. As drug experts, other members can ask us about the medications of the patients.

When it comes to drugs, we are the ones people should look for.

I have several project proposals in mind. Hopefully, by the end of the year I could show them to my colleagues and supervisor.

Dr. Syed is right. We have to dream BIG but start small. One step at a time and before we know it, we have achieved all our goals.
