Pharmacy is a growing field, especially for pharmacy technicians. Many pharmacists are also getting sign-on bonuses or other hiring incentives to work in the field. Plus, Idaho is one of the few states where pharmacists are able to diagnose and prescribe medications for things like strep throat or influenza, right there in the pharmacy. Rikki Trussel, College of Pharmacy Class of 2012, and new manager at Bengal Pharmacy in Pocatello says Idaho State University’s work with rural medicine and advancing the practice of pharmacy has always interested and excited her. She discusses the vision for Bengal Pharmacy not just in Pocatello, but at the two telepharmacy location sites in Arco and Challis, ID as well.
