Program Structure

Bachelor of Pharmacy

Pharmacy and pharmaceutical science at Griffith University is comprehensive, innovative and responsive to the needs of the profession and community. The 4-year Bachelor of Pharmacy provides students with a strong understanding of pharmacy practice and pharmacotherapeutics that will lead graduates to registration as a pharmacist after completion of 48 weeks of internship training and compliance with all other statutory requirements.

Students in this program will study core courses in chemistry, physiology, anatomy, statistics, biochemistry, pharmaceutics and pharmacology. A series of Integrated Pharmacotherapeutics courses will enable the students to understand the relationship between drugs and their therapeutic use in different disease states. Alongside the Integrated Pharmacotherapeutics courses, students will undertake a series of Pharmacy Practice courses and Placements that will develop skills enabling students to apply their knowledge in a clinical setting.

Final-year courses provide integration of the curriculum with an emphasis on management, research and special populations.
