The Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) is required to practice as a pharmacist and will prepare you for a rewarding and portable career. This is followed by the Master of Pharmacy that includes the required internship year for registration as a pharmacist.
You will learn about how medicines work and their impact on the body, and develop the knowledge, experience and expertise you need to make a difference as a medicines expert and healthcare professional. The course is fully integrated across units and themes, using medicines and patients to ensure context for the application and delivery of knowledge, professional skills, attitudes and behaviours. You will learn from experienced pharmacists and researchers and have access to some of the country's best-equipped facilities at our Parkville campus.
Your study will develop through a number of interrelated themes that come together in your practice as a pharmacist. You will undertake work placements in hospitals and community pharmacies, gaining and applying essential understanding of the processes involved in providing primary health care, drug information, and clinical pharmacy services in different practice environments.
Throughout your studies, you'll have access to innovative teaching technologies, such as 'MyDispense' - a web-based program that combines over 300 virtual patients and 1500 pharmacy products to provide authentic dispensing practice - and 'Pharmatopia', a virtual hi-tech teaching tool, developed by Monash and adopted by leading pharmacy schools around the world.
Our Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) course is accredited by the Australian Pharmacy Council. To become a registered pharmacist, you must first complete the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) degree, then undertake a period of supervised practice, while also completing an intern training program accredited by the Australian Pharmacy Council. This vertical double degree provides the opportunity to complete an accredited intern training program in conjunction with an intern foundation program (workplace learning units), which will contribute credit towards a postgraduate qualification (the Master of Pharmacy). Entry to the master's component is contingent upon successful completion of the requirements of the Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours), provisional registration with the Pharmacy Board of Australia and securing an approved intern training position.
The Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) course is also offered in Malaysia, so Australian-based students have the opportunity to complete a one-semester exchange during their bachelor-level studies. Further exchange opportunities are available through the inquiry and innovation theme to undertake laboratory, clinical, social, or business research at an approved overseas Institution.
