James Cook University (School of Pharmacy and Molecular Sciences)

Pharmacy is the branch of medical science concerned with the sources, nature, properties, preparation and use of medicinal drugs. Pharmacists are key professionals in the health care system who formulate and dispense drugs and play a central role in providing advice on the management of a patient's medication. The pharmacist is often the first point of contact between the public and the health care system, and is increasingly called upon to give advice in matters of health and hygiene. In addition, pharmacists play a role in the discovery and development of new drugs.

As a key professional branch of the health care system, pharmacists are sought after for positions in the public and private sector. Most pharmacists will opt for a career in either a hospital or a community pharmacy. However, employment opportunities also exist within the pharmaceutical industry, medical research institutes and the public service.

Pharmacists are found working predominantly within community and hospital pharmacies. Other pharmacists are employed in industrial pharmacy, pharmacy administration, research and educationor the armed services.

The Discipline of Pharmacy is committed to improving health outcomes through research in primary healthcare, the quality use of medicines clinical pharmacokinetics and pharmaceutics. In association with the Institute of Tropical Medicine, these complement research with a rural remote, indiginous and tropical focus.
