The real-life application of the theory learned, and the skills developed through coursework begins in the first weeks of the Master of Pharmacy. This subject starts with weekly supervised practice in a community setting. With directed tasks and observation by practicing pharmacists, this practice-based learning allows students to understand the operations of a community pharmacy, the process of dispensing, and begins to build skills in optimising the use of pharmacotherapy in the management and care of patients.
