Pharmacy

Pharmacists are an integral member of healthcare teams and play an essential role in delivering quality patient care. They have expert knowledge about how drugs interact with the human body and how they can be used safely for therapeutic purposes. They also use this knowledge to advise and counsel patients and other healthcare professionals on the correct use and side effects of prescribed medication.

Pharmacists are often the first health professionals contacted for advice on medication and play a major role as healthcare providers and educators to the community. More than ever, pharmacists are contributing to improved health care through their growing scope of services. They work in a variety of settings including pharmacies, hospitals, the pharmaceutical industry and in drug regulatory and research roles.

Our Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) course offers a multi–disciplinary approach to the study of human anatomy, pharmacy practice, and pharmaceutical chemistry and pharmacology. It is designed in close consultation with the pharmacy profession to capture the latest practices and emerging trends. You will develop your skills in simulation and real pharmacy environments, including more than 500 hours of professional placement in hospital and community pharmacies. The honours component of this course gives you a competitive advantage in the workplace.

QUT has modern laboratories and simulation facilities that mimic a real pharmacy environment.
