I love that the healthcare industry allows for a hands-on approach by managing and helping people. I was able to do some work experience in pharmacy and was able to see the important role that management plays in healthcare, since then I have always wanted to pursue it as a career.
My other preference was a Bachelor of Pharmacy. Getting the combined degree of the Bachelor of Pharmacy and Management was just a plus.
Social Pharmacy takes it out for sure.
No day is the same. Some days we are in the lab and others are spent in the classroom. Grabbing a coffee with friends between classes is always good too.
How well the pharmacy and management subjects go hand in hand. With such an active and social faculty and student body, I was also surprised about how many opportunities there were to participate outside the classroom.
There's so much more independence at uni. It's the best!
Honestly, they're all legends.
Any time I've ever had a question they have been so helpful and really go above and beyond for us all.
I'm going on a hospital pharmacy placement in Nepal early next year for 2 weeks. Getting involved with the social events and weekly sport the faculty offers is also great fun!
I would love to be a Directing Manager in a hospital pharmacy and hopefully manage my own pharmacy one day.
Seriously, just go for it. You won't regret it. There are so many pathways with the degree and time on campus is some of the best days of your life.
