Though the primary responsibility of Pharmacists is to dispense drugs prescribed by physicians and other health practitioners, they are becoming more and more involved in drug therapy decision making and patient counseling.  Aside from patient advice, Pharmacists play a role in education of all health care practitioners on the selection, dosages and side effects of medications.  A Pharm D is required.
