Pharmacology is the study of the sources, uses, and mechanisms of action of drugs. That is what the body does to drugs (pharmacokinetics) and what drugs do to the body (pharmacodynamics).

Pharmacy is the science or practice of the preparation, formulation, and dispensing of medicinal drugs.
Can a pharmacologist work in a pharmacy ?
A pharmacologist does not work in a pharmacy, instead they work in laboratories

Pharmacologist is a person who discovers new drugs test their action and effectiveness over a disease. ... Pharmacist is one who has enough knowledge about drugs and helps a pharmacologist in research on drugs

As a pharmacist you fill prescriptions and advise patients on drug use. You are trained in a program that has a defined length. Usually you work in a retail pharmacy or a hospital pharmacy. The pay is good, the hours are regular, the work may be repetitious. Whether it is enjoyable depends on your management and your patients/customers, but it’s a steady job.
As pharmacologist you are a research scientist, either in academia or a pharmaceutical company. The pay is not too different from a pharmacist. You are trained in a Ph.D. program which takes as long as it takes. You are trying to develop new drugs or to understand how existing drugs work.

Pharmacology is one of the branches of Pharmacy.
Pharmacology deals with Drug Dynamics and Kinetics.
While Pharmacy is Much more than that..deals with Drug Formulation, Dispensing etal.
Pharmacy is a Professional Course/Degree(B.Pharm or Pharm.D) while Pharmacology is Just a Normal BSc. Degree.
A Pharmacist can also be a Pharmacologist by virtue of Postgraduate Studies but a Pharmacologist is not a Pharmacist.
Both are not Equivalent.
Pharmacy is Much Higher than Pharmacology.

I agree with you.

But what is pharmacology?

At least we know pharmacy (the umbrella) is about drugs.

Re: What Is The Difference Between Pharmacology And Pharmacy? by GeoAfrikana(m): 9:02am On Dec 10, 2019
From my findings online, it seems pharmacology is a branch of pharmacy.

But does that necessarily mean it is inferior to pharmacy? I'll say no. Why?

Many times when a course is extracted from parent course and becomes independent, it's because the scope of the child-course has grown beyond the parent-course.

What am I saying? I'll give a few examples.

- Geology is basically an aspect of Geography known as geomorphology. But today, geology is beyond the traditional geomorphology. It's scope has widened and deepened that when a geologist is talking in his field, an ordinary geographer can only look-on. Many topics have been added to it from chemistry, physics, mathematics and stuff.

- Another example is Urban and Regional Planning. It's basically an aspect of human geography but today URP is even more respected than it's father (geography). It has borrowed topics from ecology, government, fine art, economics, law etc.

I hope this helps.

I don't think a holder of a degree in pharmacology is licensed by the professional body PCN. I may be wrong tho.
