University of Tasmania (School of Pharmacy)

The University of Tasmania is both one of Australia's oldest and newest universities. Founded in Hobart in 1890 it was only the fourth university in colonial Australia. In 1991 it merged with the Tasmanian State Institute of Technology in Launceston to form the new University of Tasmania. The University has two major campuses (maps), in Hobart and Launceston. The new North-West Centre in Burnie serves the north-west region.

The Tasmanian School of Pharmacy is located at the Sandy Bay campus in Hobart (with a population of 180,000, Hobart is the State's capital city). Clinical teaching is based at the Royal Hobart, Launceston General and the Northwest Regional hospitals and at various community pharmacy sites. The University's campus is set on one hundred hectares at Sandy Bay, not far from the city centre and on the River Derwent.

The campus offers students a range of excellent facilities. The Student Union Building has a refectory, bookshop, activities centres, a bar and computer facilities. Student Counselling, careers advice, welfare services and child-care are also available, and recreational resources include gymnasium, squash courts, tennis and sports fields.

The Tasmanian School of Pharmacy provides education in pharmacy and related sciences from undergraduate to doctoral level, conducts research programs and acts as a centre of drug expertise for the Tasmanian community. The School has recently, due to space constraints, temporarily been given an area in a separate building which, for now, houses a research unit: UMORE (the Unit for Medication Outcomes Research and Education). There are ten academic staff, two of whom have joint appointments with a teaching hospital, and three administrative and technical support staff, with a large number of research assistants. The school has developed a strong clinical emphasis in its teaching and research programs, supported by honorary clinical teachers in hospital and community pharmacies throughout the state.
