What will I learn?
The pharmacy degree at the University of Tasmania is a professionally accredited program, providing you with specialist skills and expertise in the basic and clinical pharmaceutical sciences. This is complemented by hands-on experience through professional experience placements, which help you gain the skills and attitudes required to become a registered pharmacist in Australia. Pharmacists play a central part in primary health care teams. Working alongside doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, they're essential in helping people manage their health. As a pharmacy student you will study various topics influencing human health such as:
the role of a pharmacist
how medications and their dosages are made
how medications work in the human body
using medications and other means to prevent and manage medical conditions
The Bachelor of Pharmacy provides students with the skills and knowledge to work in community, hospital and other pharmacy practice roles. You will learn the basic sciences, pharmaceutical science, pharmacy practice and communication to enable you to gain the skills and attitudes required for registering as a pharmacist in Australia. Develop your clinical pharmacy expertise on drugs and diseases to optimise the use of medicines across the healthcare system, as well as the skills required to source, prepare and supply medicines accurately and efficiently.
Our pharmacy graduates are globally recognised for the quality of their clinical pharmacy skills and ability to transform pharmacy practice, going on to work in the wider community, hospitals, research facilities and even the military. You'll be taught by some of Australia's leading pharmacists. Our staff are passionate about what they teach, including researchers from our highly successful Unit for Medication Outcomes Research and Education (UMORE) in the Faculty of Health.
Most of our graduates go on to practice as registered pharmacists in the community or in hospitals, working with other healthcare professionals and with consumers in an expanding range of roles that optimise the consumers' medication management. Some pharmacists undertake additional accreditation to conduct medication reviews for consumers in their own home, or work in residential care facilities to ensure quality use of medicines. However, pharmacists can also have other roles in Australia and overseas related to clinical trials, the evaluation of new drug products, manufacturing, research, quality control and marketing of pharmaceuticals, and in government health departments to assist with regulation, approval and supply of medications.
This course will also have an option to study with the cricos code of K.
