Pharmacy seems to be a popular course - I wonder What career opportunities are available in Singapore?

My impression is that the career scope is quite narrow - only hospitals , poly-clinics, pharmaceutical companies needs chemist. But there are not many pharmaceutical companies here.

Anyone can advise me? Thanks.

Look at this page, it seems quite comprehensive: http://forum.brightsparks.com.sg/showthread.php?t=319

If you were talking about places where you could work, then I would agree that it may seem quite limited. But as for the job scope, not so much.

Just a small piece of advice, don't choose a course because it's popular, choose it because you actually have a genuine interest in it(:
