Pharmaceutical sciences can be broadly studied into the following main categories, with many specialized fields within each category.

Drug Discovery and Design, Drug Delivery, Drug Action and Clinical Sciences, Drug Analysis, Cost Effectiveness of Medicines (Pharmacoeconomics), Drug Regulatory Affairs etc.

Pharmacists dispense and educate patients about existing medicines; pharmaceutical scientists discover, develop, test and manufacture new medications. These highly trained experts spend most of their time in a laboratory, studying how different molecules and compounds interact with the human body and with the cells and organisms that cause disease. Developing new drugs takes a very long time and costs a great deal of money. There are three stages to this process: Research, Testing & Manufacturing
