What will I learn?

This program builds on the strong science foundation that students developed in their undergraduate science or health science degree to provide advanced studies in pharmaceutical science, professional and clinical pharmacy practice and pharmacy research. It provides you with a broad range of lectures, group and self-directed learning activities, practical competence-development simulations, inter-professional learning and clinical placements to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to undertake an internship program.

While there are a number of accredited internship program providers, there are steps to be met (including provisional registration with the Pharmacy Board of Australia) before your internship can commence. Please see more complete information on the pathway to registration at this link: Internships


The programs focus on producing pharmacy graduates committed to lifelong learning who, having a sufficient understanding of the principles and techniques of pharmaceutical, clinical and social sciences, and after appropriate pre-registration training, can communicate and deliver pharmaceutical care in community and hospital settings and take professional responsibility for the manufacture and testing of pharmaceutical products.
