Dr Mirkazemi graduated with Honours from Pharmacy at the University of Tasmania in 2007. She completed her intern year at the Royal Hobart Hospital and in 2009 she was awarded an Elite Research Scholarship from the University of Tasmania, which allowed her to undertake her PhD research into thromboprophylaxis following hip and knee arthroplasty. She teaches students at the Royal Hobart Hospital in her role as Lecturer in Therapeutics and Pharmacy Practice. She also practices in community pharmacy.
Dr Mirkazemi co-ordinates both 4th year Pharmacy Skills in Practice (CSA457) and the capstone placement unit of the Bachelor of Pharmacy degree (Pharmacy Skills (CSA430)). Both units are an integration of theoretical and practical work that develops students' professional and clinical skills in a variety of pharmacy practice settings. She also teaches content in other units in the degree related to clinical hospital practice and qualitative research.
She is particularly interested in the flipped classroom approach to teaching, and incorporates this style of teaching into her practice.
Dr Mirkazemi's research interests include thromboprophylaxis following hip and knee arthroplasty, vitamin B12 deficiency, the quality use of medicines including drug utilisation evaluations, clinical pharmacy practices, and translating evidence into practice. She is now also broadening her research interests into nutrition and preventative healthcare.
Current research projects include nutritional knowledge of pharmacy students, lifestyle medicine in community pharmacy, pharmacist prescribing in community practice: measuring patients' perceptions and self-reported outcomes of pharmacist-led consultations.
