Gopika Barai worked as a pharmacist at CVS early in her career. Working at a corporate chain pharmacy entails dedicating your entire day to patient care. There are rarely gaps in care, and the pharmacist oversees pharmacy inventory, supervises pharmacy workers, and offers other critical services such as immunizations. The position necessitates meticulous attention to detail, laser focus, and critical thinking. Alert pharmacists must frequently tell patients about any medication conflicts, issue essential cautions, and often share critical healthcare information or recommendations regarding other items accessible over the counter in the pharmacy area.
