For those of you who don’t know, Micronesia is located in the western Pacific Ocean, between the Philippines and Hawaii, and is comprised of thousands of small islands.

Still don’t have a clue? Here’s a map:

This means that Micronesia is in the heart of world class scuba diving and the epitome of tropical island living.

Micronesia has a long history. The Spanish were the first to colonize the area, particularly Guam, the Northern Marianas, and the Caroline Islands (what would later become the FSM and Palau). These island territories were part of the Spanish East Indies and governed from the Spanish Philippines from the early 17th century until 1898. The United States, which took control of Guam following the Spanish-American War of 1898, and colonized Wake Island, according to EveryCulture.com.

Today, most of Micronesia consists of independent states. However, Guam and Wake Island are U.S. territories, and the Northern Mariana Islands, which PHI Pharmacy’s four retail locations are located on, form a U.S. Commonwealth.

    I am currently a pharmacist in Florida and would like to relocate to Micronesia and work in my profession. I was stationed on Guam in the 70s and would like to go back.

    Hello David,

    Sorry for the delay in following up! Please let me know if you are looking for inpatient or retail/clinic as we have had both. Are you ready to go now or is this something you are planning for in the future. Over the weekend I sent emails to several contacts in that part of the world so am just waiting to hear back. In the meantime if you would like to take advantage of our free concierge service please email your resume/CV to me at kevin@pharmacyweek.com. Thanks! Kevin Mero
