Our goal is to create future leaders in the health care sector. Graduates of the School of Pharmacy will be highly-skilled, motivated, passionate health care providers who make a difference in the world. Their expertise will be critical in a society where patients are increasingly better informed about their own care and expect more personalised health services. Drug therapy is an ever more complex part of modern health care, and pharmacists are the drug experts on a health care team.
We are living in one of the most dynamic and exciting periods in the history of pharmacy. Graduates of the programme will have a wealth of career opportunities open to them, including clinical patient care, public policy, regulatory agencies, the pharmaceutical industry, research, academia, and clinical specialties such as infectious disease or pediatrics.
