Program description

Master of Clinical Pharmacy

The Master of Clinical Pharmacy will enhance your ability as a registered pharmacist, to contribute to the quality use of medicines and to improve your critical analysis and clinical decision-making skills.

Fully online, flexible and self-directed – this course will enable you to diversify your skills for a range of advanced practice roles emerging in community and hospital settings.

Course objectives

This course will provide you with a formal training program in clinical services. You will develop critical analysis, clinical decision-making, evidence-based management skills, and generally enhance your ability to contribute to the quality use of medicine.

The course can also be used to support your efforts in becoming accredited to conduct medication reviews. You will develop your communication skills with other health professionals and patients, enhancing your ability to lead in a healthcare team.

Gain access to some of Australia's leading pharmacists. Our staff are passionate about what they teach, including researchers from our highly successful Unit for Medication Outcomes Research and Education (UMORE) in the College of Health and Medicine.

Admission requirements

At a minimum, you will need to have a Bachelor's degree in pharmacy, either from the University of Tasmania, or from another equivalent tertiary institution, and be a registered pharmacist.

Appropriate post-registration work experience of at least one year will also be normally considered as a requirement for acceptance into this program. Where an undergraduate degree has been recently obtained (within the last year), a minimum average grade of 60% obtained in the final year of study would be required for entry to the Master of Clinical Pharmacy program.

When you apply into the course, you will need to provide proof of your Bachelor of Pharmacy degree and registration as a pharmacist.
