Career development programmes for pharmacists
If you are a pharmacist and are employed at a primary care pharmacy, you have the option of attending a career development programme, customised for pharmacists who are aiming at a career in the pharmacy sector.
The course is organised by Danmarks Apotekerforening and Pharmadanmark and consists of 3 modules:

During the course you will be allocated a mentor, whom you will meet up with to discuss your career plan. Arne Nielsson is the facilitator for this part of the programme. There are 30 places for pharmacists working in pharmacies, who are keen to work on their career development in the pharmacy.

Vacancies in the pharmacy sector
Danmarks Apotekerforening has launched a career site, where, for example, you can see vacancies in the sector. You can also find job vacancies on Pharmadanmark’s website.
Become a pharmacist
Pharmacists can apply for pharmacy licences and become pharmacists. Available pharmacy licences are advertised on the website of the Danish Medicines Agency and licences are assigned by the Danish Medicines Agency. The application procedure is described on the Agency’s website.
The Council for Promotion advises the Danish Medicines Agency in cases involving licences to run a pharmacy and the appointment of private hospital pharmacists. The role of the Council is to comment on whether or not the individual applicant is suitable or unsuitable for running a pharmacy.
The work of the Council for Promotion is divided into:
- Authorisation to run pharmacies (handled by 4 advisory consultants, who are nominated by Pharmadanmark, the Danish Association of Pharmoconomists, Danmarks Apotekerforening and Forbrugerrådet Tænk)
- Appointment of private hospital pharmacists (handled by 3 advisory consultants, who are nominated by Pharmadanmark, the Danish Association of Pharmoconomists and hospital pharmacy owners)
If you are interested in applying to run a pharmacy, we recommend you to arrange a meeting with Pharmadanmark’s Promotion Consultant, Lisbeth Hein: email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Promotion Consultant cannot advise applicants in terms of applying for a specific licence, but can offer general advice.
