It's unfair to Radiography to compare it to pharmacy.

Starting from the admission cut off point, Pharmacy is more competitive to even gain admission into and as a matter of fact if you can't cope in pharmacy, you can go to Radiography. There's no point comparing both. If you love radiography, please go for it.

I have wondering what is special or lucrative about radiography since. undecided

Is that what you are trained to do?
To sell your licence to the highest bidder?

Apart from but vit c and para, what can pharmacists in Nigeria produce.
Very dead profession.

Let me search for the article released not long ago on how to revive naija pharm image and profession.


You are a lady pharm, you probably end up with shop where half is provision store and half imported drugs.

Most chemist owners are better at the drug prescription sef.
Hate Hate Hate!!!!!!!!. The Pharmacy industry is not in a great place in Nigeria. We aren't even providing the required number of Pharmacists in Nigeria as directed by WHO. You can check their website. We have Less than 20k registered Pharmacist for 200 million people now imagine how low it is.
Please never you again call Pharmacy ordinary chemist shop. It is bad and and it further proves your Ignorance.
A Pharmacist cannot sell his License. Why would he? When you can be calmly collecting your cash monthly. I am not a Pharmacist Oga. In my Area there's a Big Pharmaceutical store that does whole sales and Retail. Do you know how much people patronize them?
Mr Man Radiography is "Image Technology". You don't even consult them for treatment only to provide clearer images. It is of recent they started doing Diagnostic Radiography. If they diagnose, a Radiologist must review and Sign.
You can't go to the Radiographer. You go to see a Doctor. You can go to see a Pharmacist.
No matter how you belittle Pharmacy, in the world they're far far Renowned and knowledgeable.
To test you, Type Renowned Pharmacist and also Type Renowned Radiographer. Tell me what you want to use a Radiographer to do in rural outreach.
Radiographers are in shortage in the UK but time will come when Foreign Radiographers won't be needed.
You study Radiography because you to want to work under somebody. It is not independent simple.

Denied admission into pharmacy? cheesy
Let me forgive you.

Greed destroyed the profession.
Where drug importers will buy your cert off and hevk, why suffer when you can easily cash out without suffering.

Useless country with no future.


Read the other day, those doing house jobs( medicine) etc won't be paid again.


Yeah, I'm very angry on how this noble profession has been reduced to nothing.
The only place I saw pharmacists throughout my stay in Nigeria do their work was in shell hospital.

You are saying nothing but the truth..
Only few pharmacists do their work as Pharm.
Others usually go for MBA to boost their businesses... cool

Pharmacy is Oversaturated!!!

Radiography is more lucrative...both in nigeria and abroad. It's one profession in nigeria with very few practitioners, they're hotcakes in the military. I'm yet to see a radiographer without a job but I know many pharmacists that aren't practicing for one reason or the other. Go for radiography & live a regret free life.
Wow. Is this for real?

Though I don't fully agree with you. But the course is very lucrative. He should think of radiology, nuclear medicine, etc. The high rate of cancer is making it very useful these days.
Also, radiation based imaging used in airports and also in ports could be handled by a radiographer.

Upon graduation one should look for internship. And even specialize further.

Both course can give you money immediately after graduation but Pharmacy is faster in terms of recruitment as everyone and anyone is now into pharmacy business especially community pharmacy

Radiopharmacy is still not lucrative especially in Nigeria or even around the world. This area is still under development.

So is because of 100K that's causing the insult between Radiographer and Pharmacist? Radiographers earn 70-75K at most 80Kin state government and private hospitals. Stop saying 100K. It is even big hospitals that pay the 100k.
It is only new Pharmacist that are fighting for hospital Job. Even some of them are wiser now sef. Do you know how much their License can fetch them? You even had to put Med Lab to further insult Pharmacy.
Med Lab in the US and UK is even worst. The highest earned 75K, Lowest 37K dollars per year
While the average is 50K dollars per year. In the UK, the med lab scientist earn 15-18k pounds per year. Radiography earns far higher Abroad than Med Lab Scientist. Average 75K, Lowest 60k, Highest 90K dollars per year. In the UK they can earn from 28K pounds per year to 50 K pounds per year so just remove med lab from your defense.
Pharmacy has its own Faculty but Med Lab and Radiography are mostly found in the College of Medicine. If they were so independent and successful they should have had their own Faculty.
A Pharmacist in Nigeria. I mean a "Pharmacist" with his portable retail can earn more than 150k at list from basic retail. Now imagine if he goes into wholesale by selling ;drugs, drips, syringes as well as other needed items.
Nigeria doesn't have a course called Forensic Radiography. People you find in the field of it are Engineers, Geophysicist and some Physicist.

Owners of Most big pharmacies you see around are not even pharmacists. Just big, smart business people.

I'm a pharmacist in view though..

Bro if I don't know what am saying, I would have shut up.... I am quite surrounded by a lot of firms seeking personel. An not been to UK or USA to know their job earnings... But you see this nails and jobs. I know too much cuz I run a job 9jc, 00agency...

Two years ago.. I went on a search to get a radiographer : posted on all their regional group search.. We got calls every hour, but all of them are all employed.. OK , we offered to pay 120k and non accepted saying they can change only at above 150k..i quickly researched and found that they all earn above at least 130k even those in the remotest villages..

Taking about pharmacist digressing to trade. Radiographers also open up labs... And make serious money... My guy who is a radiographer and who owned a lab.. Earns over two million monthly from running the lab. Again he left to the UK. Where his monthly income in Maura is about 3million monthly

.i sit know where u got all ur stats.. But radiography is a more profitable course than pharmacy
Re: Radiography Vs Pharmacy. Which Is More Lucrative by Sunsets: 7:26am On Apr 27
I love your question simply because it is an opportunity for some of us to guide one another in this world of work. It's obvious you have a choice to make between radiography and pharmacy and your biggest factor-decider is 'lucrative'. Every profession, vocation, career, by whatever name you want to call it, is potentially lucrative by equal measure. Instead, lookout for passion, commitment, consistency, happiness, focus, continuous personal improvement, the lucrative part will fall in easily. Even truck pushing is lucrative as long as you combine these attributes I outlined.

Re: Radiography Vs Pharmacy. Which Is More Lucrative by sonnie10: 7:36am On Apr 27
If you have a degree in pharmacy from Nigeria and move to the US, here is what you will face . You will have to do another 3 -4 years for you to have doctorate before you can practice. But should you want to branch out into radiology, a radiography program would take you about 18months to obtain a license.
