This feeling may be what is called "Imposter Syndrome" and as a pharmacist, perhaps you've felt this before. Jessica Adams, PharmD certainly has, and in this article she discusses the ways in which pharmacists can combat these self-doubts and affirm the worth of a pharmacist to yourself and others in the healthcare world.

The new chairman for National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) said in a recent interview with Chain Drug Review, "Advancements in technology and new ways of communicating exist that can further modernize the pharmacy in a way that would allow one pharmacist to potentially supervise multiple locations. Doing so would lower costs and enable community pharmacy to remain relevant as digitalization continues to revamp industries."
