Bachelor of Pharmacy
Coming from the north-west coast I knew that I would have to move away from home to attend Uni, and so I applied to a number of universities across Australia with success. At the end of the day I chose to study with the University of Tasmania because it was so easy to drive home on the weekends and holiday breaks, and it had the best reputation for teaching pharmacy in Australia.
The information that we learnt was very interesting and valuable, but the placements that the University of Tasmania provided us with were by far my favourite aspect. In my final year I was on placement for the entire second semester and was immersed in the field learning about and gaining confidence in what would be my future profession.
I have applied for hospital pharmacy roles in Tasmania and hope to work in a clinical environment where I can be introduced to new and challenging scenarios that will give me a new insight into practicing pharmacy alongside other health clinicians and specialists.
