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 practising pharmacists, this practice-based learning builds skills in optimising the use of pharmacotherapy in the management and care of patients, delivering health services and interventions (e.g. health promotion activities) and promoting quality use of medicines. Students maintain an e-portfolio to demonstrate their learning and professional development, particularly with respect to the graduate attributes.
