If you want a rewarding career supporting the health of people and communities through better medicines and usage, then study Pharmacy with us at the University of Auckland.
Scientific advances mean that in modern healthcare people benefit from having a range of experts involved in their health care needs.
Increasingly teams of healthcare professionals such as nurses, doctors and pharmacists are working together and using their individual expertise to maximise people’s health. Pharmacists are the medicines experts. They are concerned with ensuring that people receive the most suitable medicines and receive the maximum health benefit from them.
To achieve this pharmacists spend much of their time talking to patients and their whānau, carers and a range of health care professionals about medicines. Pharmacists work in a variety of roles and their direct role in patient care is expanding. This allows pharmacists to directly help more people get the most from their medicines.
Our Bachelor of Pharmacy degree has been changed substantially in recent years to better equip graduates with the skills and knowledge to fulfil the vital role of a pharmacist in the rapidly changing world of healthcare.
