It is enough for a pharmacist to have a secondary vocational education in any specialty!
See the Draft Order of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation "On the approval of the professional standard" Pharmacist ":
To find out what education you need in any specialty, you need to find a professional the standard of the profession you are interested in. It will contain mandatory requirements for the education of a specialist.
Despite the fact that there is only a draft of the professional standard of a pharmacist, one should focus primarily on this document, since practice shows that when approving and editing drafts of professional standards, education requirements do not change.
To work in a pharmacy, you need to get an education in the direction of Pharmacy. To enter a university in this direction, you need to take the Unified State Exam in Russian, biology, chemistry, and sometimes specialized mathematics. Here you can see the options for educational programs of different universities, there you can specify the city in the filter and study information only for the desired region, see which competition, average passing scores, tuition fees, etc.
And, please, ask not a PHARMACIST and SELLER, but a pharmacist! At least, this is disrespectful towards a person, most often with a higher pharmaceutical education, we go through such hell for 5 years, then the internship is not for the sake of the PHARMACIST and the SELLER. Let's be more educated and polite) thanks!
Pharmaceutical, which can be either intermediate or higher. If you have enough work at the "first table" - that is, dispensing medicines to patients or preparing them by hand, then secondary education is enough. If you want to manage an apek in the future, or even several, you need a "tower" specializing in "pharmacist".
This, as far as I remember, is not higher, but secondary education.
So ... well, that's it. Yeah, come on. That's it, uh-huh. Okay. Come on, yeah. Bye.
