Pharmacy

Play a vital role in improving the health of the community.

We develop caring, resourceful practitioners who can think outside the box. Unlike big city institutions, we know all our students personally, and we have a focus on healthcare in challenging environments.

Multi-disciplinary health care

Our pharmacy academics are some of the best. They'll teach you the decision-making skills to identify and manage complex therapeutic problems within a multi-disciplinary healthcare team. You'll learn to develop individual health care plans for patients with complex conditions, focusing on self-management.

Placements

Pharmacy has an emphasis on Indigenous health, as well as rural and remote pharmacy. Students undertake work placements in community pharmacies, hospitals and rural clinics through our nine-week practical experience program.

Career pathways

Pharmacy graduates have a wide range of rewarding career options and opportunities.  Most graduates opt for careers as community or hospital pharmacists.  Other options include clinical roles in General Practice and Aboriginal Medical Services, careers in the pharmaceutical industry, research and teaching, scientific writing, and leadership and advocacy.

The demand for registered pharmacists is expected to continue especially in regional and remote areas of Australia and Pharmacists are listed on the Northern Territory skills gap register. 

Prize giving

The College awards prizes to the highest achieving students in the Bachelor of Pharmacy.  We look forward to celebrating with students at our annual prize giving ceremony
