Can pharmacist practice like doctors?

Pharmacists work with doctors, since a doctor (or a nurse-practitioner) prescribes medication and the pharmacist fills the prescription. But a pharmacist is not the same as a doctor. A pharmacist is certainly a skilled professional in the medical field: he or she generally has a four year degree, specializing in Pharmacy, and is taught about drug interactions, allergic reactions, and the newest medications. But a doctor has to study for much longer (about eight years), and pharmacology is only one aspect of what a medical doctor must learn. Some pharmacists go on for a master's degree, but unlike doctors, they cannot prescribe medications nor do surgery or any of the other duties of a doctor. Doctors not only study medicine longer than pharmacists do-- doctors also must complete an internship, residency, and pass medical board exams. So while pharmacists and doctors are both educated and may work together, they do entirely different things and operate at very different skill levels.

How long do have to study medicine for until you become a qualified doctor?

It takes many years to study to become a doctor. First, you would have to earn a bachelor's degree in pre-med, which takes 4 years. After the bachelors degree you go to medical school, which takes another 4 years. Once your education is completed, you then must complete a residency which typically takes another 2 years, which means that it takes about ten years of additional training after high school to become a doctor.
