In most Pharmacy curriculums, sickle cell disease is mentioned maybe once or twice (or not even at all). This makes sense when you consider the number of more prevalent disease states (diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, etc...) that we have to learn about in a mere 4 years.
For most pharmacists, encounters with sickle cell disease are few and far between. However, if you work in a city (particularly if it's an international hub such as DC or New York), you will encounter sickle cell somewhat regularly.
On top of that, if you have any interest in heme/onc or pediatrics, sickle cell disease is something you will need to know.
