The school’s 400 partners offer clinical and research placement opportunities for students on the Gold Coast, in rural Australia and overseas. The newest of these includes a placement rotation through Indonesia where students experience hospital, community and industrial pharmacy, and a hospital/research placement in Singapore. These activities reflect the strong partnerships that the School of Pharmacy has with clinical and research centres around the world.
Griffith’s School of Pharmacy was the first pharmacy school in Australia to introduce Stage 1 Australian Association of Consultant Pharmacy training, giving graduates an advantage when developing their career in medication management. The school also introduced vaccination training for students in 2013, ahead of the Queensland Government trial.
