Diverse Practice Settings

The specialty is gaining momentum and recognition in such publications as Pharmacy Today which published:

A psychiatric pharmacist is a pharmacist that has extensive knowledge regarding psychiatric medications. Likewise, neurologic pharmacists have extensive knowledge regarding neurologic medications. Often, these two areas of pharmacy practice overlap. Both types of pharmacists can be involved in many diverse roles. Practice areas are broad and include positions ranging from involvement with drug research and development to those with direct patient contact. Still others are involved in mentoring and teaching pharmacists, physicians and nurses currently in training.
