Here I’ve gathered a collection of gift ideas for the Pharmacy School graduate. Show them how proud you are that they got their PharmD degree with one of these classy or funny gifts! Some of my favorite picks are personalized graduation gifts, pharmacy and medical themed gifts, jewelry, funny shirts and mugs, pharmacist figurines, unique collectibles, and RX and pill related presents! Pharmacy College is rigorous, so graduating is a big success that calls for a party… or maybe a memorable gift or two 🙂

The number of Spanish speakers in the United States has been steadily rising. In 1980, the number of Spanish language speakers was only 5% of the U.S. population, but by 2020 that figure is predicted to increase to 14%. In some areas of this country, knowing Spanish will certainly help you get a job – and Spanish speaking customers will really appreciate your ability to communicate with them.
