Pharmacy is the medical profession charged with the safe and effective use of medication. Practitioners are called pharmacists. Also, a pharmacy is an establishment where medication is sold and pharmacy is practiced.
Lyran pharmacists must obtain a Doctor of Pharmacy diploma from an university in order to practice pharmacy, and could be referred to as doctor just like physicians and dentists were. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Educational Armageddon")
Types of pharmacyEdit
Pharmacies were further divided into first-line pharmacies, which provided medication, and sometimes other supplies, for household use, and hospital pharmacies, which provided medication for hospital use. Often hospital pharmacies supplied more specialized medication than first-line pharmacies. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Educational Armageddon")
