Pharmacy Practice

The Graduate Certificate in Pharmacy Practice is a part-time postgraduate course with two study pathways designed for either pharmacy interns or registered pharmacists.

For Pharmacy interns, this course provides graduates with the training, experience and education required for professional registration as a pharmacist. It incorporates an Intern Training Program into the first year to allow pharmacy graduates to meet the legislative requirements to register as a pharmacist in Australia then complete a formal, postgraduate qualification by undertaking an (optional) additional year of study. This provides a clear extension and continuation of the cross-disciplinary, integrated approach to learning and teaching undertaken at the University of Sydney.

This course is also recommended for registered pharmacists who wish to develop exceptional clinical skills relevant to contemporary pharmacy practice in Australia. Registered pharmacists have the option of completing the course in one year by choosing four other units of study in place of the units relating to the Intern Training Program.
