PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

We want to get you work-ready with a clear understanding of the role of a pharmacist , so you ’ ll be exposed to real-life practice environments as early as possible .
From your second year onwards , you ’ ll undergo professional pharmacist training at experiential placement sites as part of your course . You ’ ll spend time in different settings working with pharmacists in :
• government hospitals
• private hospitals
• rural clinics
• community pharmacies .
During your placements , you ’ ll have the opportunity to observe and assist the pharmacist in day-to-day duties like ward rounds , patient case reviews , patient counselling , filling prescriptions and dispensing medications . Additionally , you ’ ll undergo and experience an in-house industrial training program to enhance your knowledge on how drugs are developed , produced and marketed .
