There are several important qualities that a pharmacist should have. 

First, a pharmacist must be intelligent. Since pharmacists are dealing with sick people who need advice, they must be intelligent when it comes to drugs and how people can benefit from them. 

Second, a pharmacist must also be meticulous. For the simple reason that people can overdose on drugs or the wrong drug can be given, a pharmacist must be exacting in the dispensing of drugs. 

Third, a pharmacist should be compassionate, as he or she will be dealing with people who are in need.
