    25 Cities With The Highest Pharmacist Salaries


     Pharmacy is a financially rewarding career. Both high salaries and the predicted expansion of pharmacist roles are credited with fueling the explosion of new pharmacy schools, which many in the industry fear will eventually put the brakes on pharmacist salaries.

    Even so, the average salary for pharmacists in the United States can vary greatly by location, according to ValuePenguin. It recently analyzed median salaries, cost of living, and pharmacist demand in compiling its list of top cities for pharmacists (See 2015’s Top Cities for pharmacists).

    ValuePenguin analyzed median salaries in 396 small, mid-sized, and large cities based on data collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2014.

    Of course, we realize that a $140,000 salary in Georgia, practically speaking, is more than a similar salary in California. We make no judgment on cost of living. Rather, we just present the information for your edification.

      Most of these are in California and Texas! It would be nice to see Cody of the living in these areas!

      Are these salaries base salaries or do they include profit sharing, health benefits and other perks?
