The pharmacy profession is evolving at an exponential rate and demand for highly trained pharmacists in clinical areas is increasing sharply. The Bachelor of Pharmacy with Professional Honours (Clinical Pharmacy) is a fully online course that provides pharmacists with the clinical knowledge and skills to further their careers in hospital or community pharmacy, or within the pharmaceutical industry. The course adopts a structured approach based on Evidence Based Medicine principles, and requires students to complete eight units of study. The course features six clinical coursework units designed to provide pharmacists with advanced knowledge on the management of common diseases, and two dedicated coursework units to provide a sound understanding of practice-based research to enable students to design effective research projects and quality improvement initiatives in their own workplaces. On completion of the eight units of study, students may enrol in four additional research units to graduate with a Master of Clinical Pharmacy. Alternatively, students have the option of exiting with a Graduate Diploma of Clinical Pharmacy after completing the six clinical coursework units.
