Pharma Insights: Medicines Life Cycle - OLET5502

Year - 2020

This 2 credit point unit will provide you with a deep insight into the processes involved in translating new drug entities and formulations from early stages in the laboratory to the final regulatory products approved for market. In learning about these processes, you will also have the opportunity to explore the many potential career pathways in the pharmaceutical industry. This OLE will contribute to filling the gap between the graduate qualities expected of the University's education and research excellence, and the knowledge and skills sought by the growing pharmaceutical sector engaged in clinical research in Australia and globally. You will bring your disciplinary knowledge, understanding, research skills and work experience to engage with the unit material, which is developed and delivered in collaboration with the regulatory and industrial bodies, industry-leading clinical research training experts and pharmaceutical market leaders. By undertaking this unit, you will gain an introduction to specialised knowledge and skills not currently accessible to a range of graduate students, experience a relevant and authentic curriculum, and further develop graduate qualities of an integrated professional, ethical and personal identity, and interdisciplinary effectiveness.
