If you are passionate about helping people, improving the health of communities and want a career in a growing industry with job security, look no further – pharmacy may be the perfect option for you.
Pharmacy can lead to a range of careers, including working in retail community pharmacy stores, hospitals, Defence Force, research and drug development, aged care facilities, GP and health clinics, home visits, health service management and much more. As well as dispensing medications, retail pharmacists often provide a range of services, such as health and medication advice, vaccinations, health check-ups and reviews of medications.
“Since I’ve done pharmacy, no two days have been the same. There is just so much diversity to a career in pharmacy and it’s so rewarding as you really get to see the difference you can make to someone’s health.”
Kate Gill, JCU Bachelor of Pharmacy graduate
