Faculty of Pharmacy

Faculty of Pharmacy

Overview

The majority of pharmacy graduates work in community practice (commonly known as a chemist's shop or community pharmacy). A smaller number of graduates find roles in hospital pharmacies in either the public or private sector. Because of the broad medical knowledge and skills obtained as part of the Pharmacy degree, graduates are also well suited for employment in the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmacists are sought after in the manufacturing, medical, sales and marketing sectors of the industry. Postgraduate study allows interested students to gain experience and skills in research.

Pharmacy qualifications offer unique career options and flexibility, combining a professional degree with research experience. Graduates may seek employment in fulltime research work or choose to pursue a research-based higher degree. Pharmacists are also employed by various government agencies, both Commonwealth and State, generally in positions concerned with the control, manufacture, supply and distribution of medicines and medicinal preparations. Openings also occur in the defence services and universities.
