Welcome from the Dean
I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and continuing students in the Faculty of Pharmacy. Our faculty is recognised as one of the leading centres for Pharmacy education in Australia and enjoys an outstanding national and international reputation for research and innovation.
As a student in the faculty you will be taught by, and interact with, world-renowned academics who, as well as being known as leaders in their field, are highly regarded for their friendly approachable manner.
Our students and staff continually strive for excellence in their learning, teaching and research and the Faculty actively promotes opportunities to allow you to add new skills and experiences to your personal achievements. Our innovative teaching style, clinical and experiential placements and voluntary business skills programs will provide you with a well rounded professionally relevant pharmacy degree putting you in high demand with employers.
Research at the Faculty covers pharmaceutical and clinical sciences ranging from the design, synthesis, testing and mechanism of action of drugs, studies on advanced drug delivery and the fate of drugs in humans, to clinical and sociological aspects of pharmacy and health services research.
Pharmacists are an integral part of the healthcare system and have the capacity to directly affect the lives and lifestyles of the people with whom they interact. Whether you decide to register as a pharmacist and work in community or hospital pharmacy, enter the pharmaceutical industry, work for government agencies, contribute to research and academia you will have the ability and expertise to help improve the well being of the nation.
I would hope that you find your experience with us an enriching one that is intellectually, socially and culturally rewarding and would encourage you to embrace the opportunities provided by the Faculty and University to the full.
