Your next step.

Working within and for the largest pharmacy network in the country, you can provide a great deal of support and take on interesting roles – whether on the front line or in the back office.

Specialist Pharmacist in Retail Pharmacy (FPH)

The title “Specialist Pharmacist in Retail Pharmacy (FPH)” has been mandatory since 1 January 2018 if you wish to work independently as a federally certified pharmacist or as a manager of a pharmacy.

You complete the work-study further training in the retail pharmacy under the responsibility of a recognised further training instructor. You will be supported on your journey: At Galenica, you will receive close monitoring, support and coaching.

Do you have a foreign qualification in pharmacy? If so, it must be recognised by MEBEKO in order for you to complete this further training.


For a workload of between 80 and 100%, the training normally lasts two years. If you have a lower workload, the further training will be extended accordingly.


Galenica covers the costs. All the more reason to train as a specialist pharmacist in retail pharmacy.
