What will I learn?

Pharmacy as a profession is evolving continuously and new practices are introduced to provide better healthcare for people. If helping the sick recover from the appropriate use of medicines and promoting of wellness and healthy lifestyle gives you a sense of purpose, then pharmacy will be a good choice of study. In addition, pharmacy education provides one with the grounding in physicochemical, biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences. This can also open career opportunities into the exciting arena of pharmaceutical industry where you can be involved in the research and development of drugs, clinical trials, pharmaceutical marketing and pharmaceutical sales.

The primary aim of the pharmacy course is to provide the relevant knowledge and skills that are required for entry into the profession. The course focuses on laying a strong foundation in topics related to pharmaceutical sciences and pharmacy practice so that graduates can readily apply these fundamental principles to their future employment, be it in the community practice, hospital service, healthcare business, pharmaceutical industry or research. In addition, interprofessional education is integrated into the curriculum as an essential component to prepare graduates for interprofessional collaborative patient-centered practice as healthcare professionals. The curriculum is enriched with experiential learning in the form of laboratory training, interactive flipped classroom learning models and one-on-one coaching on professional skills (such as patient counselling), and finally culminating in a capstone year (i.e. Year 4) by completing a final year research project and internships.
