i m a pharmacist since last 20 year,now can i start my practice as a medical practioner as a doctor?


to practice medicine in the USA, you have to have graduated from an accredited medical
school and have passed the medical boards for the state in which you wish to practice.
pharmacy school+ state boards= pharmacist
medical school + state board = doctor

i know more about diagnosing and prescribing than the average person but i am in no
way qualified to be a doctor any more than my doctor is of being a pharmacist.



  • Not sure where you are from but here in the United States they are two different lic. NO you cannot just got from being a Pharmacist to a Dr. here wtf?
    You can not even introduce your question in the right way nit sure I would want you to be my Dr. anyway…
    Should have said I have been a Pharmacist for that last 20 years … and you didn’t use the right punctuations and or capital letters wow what sort of Dr. are you trying to be?References : mother of many (common sence and knowlegde)

  • Seems as if you’d already know the answer to this question. Ask around town to the Doctors you know..References :
