Program Description

Bachelor of Pharmacy (BPHAR)

The Bachelor of Pharmacy is a professional degree designed to meet the demands for pharmacy services in Australia. There is a particular focus on rural and remote practice to meet the unique and diverse needs of communities in these regions. Pharmacists are knowledgeable about the chemical, physical, and biological properties of drugs, how medications work, their usage, and their clinical effects. Pharmacists provide information, advice, and education on medicines and health issues enabling patients to achieve optimal health outcomes.

Pharmacists are also involved in advising medical practitioners and other healthcare professionals on the interactions and side effects of medications, medication selection and dosage, and a range of other issues.

Graduates will have a comprehensive understanding and knowledge of the basic sciences plus pharmaceutics, pharmaco-therapeutics and pharmacy practice, decision making skills to identify and manage complex therapeutic problems within a multi-disciplinary health care team; the ability to develop an individual health care plan for patients with complex conditions, focussing on self-management; effective communication skills for professional pharmacy practice, enabling essential information transfer between pharmacists and patients, colleagues, and health care professionals to achieve positive health outcomes for individuals and communities, and an ability to practice effectively, efficiently, ethically, and at 'best practice' standards.

More than 120 years ago, Banjo Paterson described the Northern Territory as a “vast wild land, full of huge possibilities”.And he was right.So how did a relatively small population, spread sparsely across an area, one–fifth the land mass of Australia, with little educational resources to speak of, turn those possibilities into a reality?By creating a study environment where the freedom exists for people to evolve their lives.Today this environment is captured at Charles Darwin University (CDU).
