This graduate entry master course enables science graduates to become registered pharmacists. It will provide you with a comprehensive theoretical base, including chemical, biological, physiological, pharmaceutical and pharmacotherapeutics studies.

In this course you’ll complete two additional study periods over the summer period, as well as two usual semesters each year. The first study period is an intensive six-week training program involving 30 hours weekly contact and continuous assessment. In this period you’ll be introduced to important concepts in pharmaceutics, pharmaceutical chemistry and pharmaceutical practice.

The rest of your first year will focus on pharmaceutical science, pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacology and pharmaceutical practice. At the end of your first year you’ll complete a community pharmacy placement under the supervision of a practicing pharmacist to develop skills in the clinical setting.

In your second year you’ll focus on pharmacotherapy and develop research skills. You’ll also complete a hospital placement to cement your practical skills.

Throughout this course you’ll use high quality laboratories and facilities designed to enhance teaching and provide you with essential practical skills. The school laboratories include a model dispensary, a manufacturing laboratory, an asepsis suite and laboratories for microbiological, chemical and pharmacological investigations.

Professional recognition

This course is accredited by the Australian Pharmacy Council.

Graduates are required to complete a preregistration training period and register as a pharmacist before being able to commence practice in most areas of the profession. Graduates are able to register to practice in all states and territories in Australia and New Zealand.

This course provides a great stepping stone to registration in other countries throughout Asia and in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Some countries may require fulfilment of additional practical training programs.

Career opportunities

Graduates are both highly employable and sought after. As a graduate, you may seek a career in health care working in the fields of community, hospital or consult pharmacy.

The role of the pharmacist within community pharmacy has expanded to include assisting patients with the management of their chronic diseases, such as obesity, asthma and diabetes. In the future, pharmacists in the primary care setting are going to become increasingly involved in the care of patients through multidisciplinary teams. The setting of practice of pharmacy will expand from the community pharmacist to include medical clinics and the patient’s home. The role of pharmacists as prescribers is currently under investigation.

Within hospitals, pharmacists provide a diverse range of services from drug distribution and dispensing, provision of drug information and education, through to ward-based clinical pharmacy services where they participate in patient care as part of a team. Hospital pharmacists may also engage in quality assurance programs and clinical research.

Consultant pharmacists provide medication management review services. They work in collaboration with patients and their doctors to ensure the patient achieves the best outcomes from their drug therapy. Such pharmacists work in aged care facilities and/or patients’ homes.

Graduates may also develop a career in the pharmaceutical industry which employs pharmacists in a number of areas including research roles in the development of medicines, production of pharmaceuticals, quality assurance, regulatory services, marketing and drug information.

Graduates may also work for the State or Federal Government in regulatory and policy roles.

Credit for previous study

Applications for credit for recognised learning (CRL) are assessed on an individual basis.

About the programme

Widely considered the new epidemic of the 21st century, heart failure is a leading cause of hospitalization in patients over 65 years of age. The increasingly complex demands of treating such patients calls for a new kind of physician, i.e. a cardiologist who is not only competent in clinical medicine and pharmacotherapy, but is also skilled in cardiac devices and their programming. This specialist must also be highly knowledgeable in imaging modalities and procedures of the coronary circulation and valvular apparatus, and similarly qualified in the management of patients with end-stage heart failure.

Program Features

PCHF consists of a two-year programme with eight modules of 2,5 days each, a total of 160 hours lectures and 140 hours of self-study. Each module is chaired by an internationally recognized expert. Modules will be taught in Brussels and Zurich.
