Gain the core knowledge needed to manage and optimise medicines in healthcare settings with the Graduate Certificate of Clinical Pharmacy from University of Queensland.


The professional roles of pharmacists are continually evolving. The World Health Organization (WHO) concept of the 8-Star Pharmacist lends itself to a broad and holistic approach to pharmacy education and practice. It envisions pharmacists as caregivers, decision-makers, communicators, managers, lifelong learners, teachers, leaders and researchers. It's used as a framework for developing scope of practice and expertise as a clinical pharmacy practitioner.

The postgraduate Clinical Pharmacy programs at University of Queensland support pharmacists into the future by facilitating the advancement of their skills, knowledge, understanding and confidence to practise competently in an ever-changing healthcare environment. This program is designed to build your understanding of many domains of clinical pharmacy practice, giving you the skills to provide positive patient outcomes within a complex health environment.
