Integrated Patient Centred Care at UQ School of Pharmacy

The Bachelor of Pharmacy (BPharm) program at the UQ School of Pharmacy prepares graduates for the contemporary role of the pharmacist in society ensuring that patients optimize medication usage.
Initial courses on chemical, physical, and biological studies lead to professional specialties in later years. Practical and clinical science studies begin in first year, providing students with a strong background in professional practice.
The program integrates six streams of study: quality use of medication; dosage form design; social and professional aspects of pharmacy; drug discovery; biological fate of drugs; and data analysis in pharmacy.
An important aspect of pharmacy training is patient care, and through UQ’s Integrated Patient Centred Care course, students will be able to use their immense knowledge of medicines and apply it in a way that is focused on the patient rather than just on the technical aspects of drugs and their uses. Students in this course are immersed in realistic patient scenarios, including frequent interruptions!
