About this course

The professional roles of pharmacists are continually evolving. The World Health Organization (WHO) concept of the 8-Star Pharmacist lends itself to a broad and holistic approach to pharmacy education and practice. It envisions pharmacists as caregivers, decision-makers, communicators, managers, lifelong learners, teachers, leaders and researchers. It's used as a framework for developing scope of practice and expertise as a clinical pharmacy practitioner.

The postgraduate clinical pharmacy programs at UQ support pharmacists into the future by facilitating the advancement of their skills, knowledge, understanding and confidence to practise competently in an ever-changing healthcare environment. This program is designed to build your understanding of many domains of clinical pharmacy practice, giving you the skills to provide positive patient outcomes within a complex health environment.

The programs also involve some small group interactive learning and online tutorials with specialists and experts. A multidisciplinary team approach is used in the delivery of all programs, including input from clinical pharmacists, medical practitioners, academia and government agencies from metropolitan and rural environments.

Professional roles of pharmacists are continuously evolving, and you'll graduate with the skills to tackle any role.
