Academic pharmacists can specialize in the pharmaceutical sciences, clinical sciences, or other facets of pharmacy practice to help prepare the next generation of practitioners training to become pharmacists.

These individuals may be responsible for a wide variety of responsibilities including drug discovery and development, the management of graduate and research assistants, the delivery of didactic lectures, student advising, patient care and experiential education of students. They are often involved in scholarship, service, grant writing, and research.
