Based on the Gold Coast campus, Griffith’s School of Pharmacy is known for its innovative teaching that produces highly sought after graduates in pharmacy and pharmaceutical science. With the opening of the Gold Coast University Hospital - Australia's first public university hospital and located next to the new Griffith Health Centre - students are ideally placed to gain practical work place experience as part of multidisciplinary teams.
The School’s 400 partners offer clinical and research placement opportunities for students on the Gold Coast, in rural Australia and overseas. The newest of these includes a placement rotation through Indonesia where students experience hospital, community and industrial pharmacy, and a hospital/research placement in Singapore. These activities reflect the strong partnerships that the School of Pharmacy has with clinical and research centres around the world.
Griffith’s School of Pharmacy was the first pharmacy school in Australia to introduce Stage 1 Australian Association of Consultant Pharmacy training, giving graduates an advantage when developing their career in medication management. The School also introduced vaccination training for students in 2013, ahead of the Queensland Government trial.
With outstanding facilities such as a professional practice laboratory with model dispensary and a dedicated formulations lab and aseptic dispensing unit, supportive staff and active student organisations, the School of Pharmacy offers students an exciting opportunity to learn pharmacy and pharmaceutical science in a vibrant world-class environment.
