Placements at community and hospital pharmacies gave Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) Chris Gregory real insight into how pharmacists operate in the real world.
Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours)
I’ve had placements at community and hospital pharmacies. This allowed me to gain the skills, confidence and knowledge to work in any pharmacy scenario. I was also able to secure a part time job from one of my placements.
I always wanted to be a pharmacist and follow in my dad’s footsteps.
As part of my studies, I’ve completed work placements at community and hospital pharmacies. These experiences helped me to gain the skills, confidence and knowledge to work in a range of pharmacy environments. I was also able to secure a part time job from one of my placements.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting lots people through my program - the small class sizes allowed me to connect with my teachers and peers.
The skills that I’ve gained through my program have been drug knowledge and importantly people skills. These skills are vital when counselling people on medications and helping them to find a solution for their concerns.
My favourite subject has been drug delivery, which was interesting because we were given insight into how products are made.
During my time at RMIT I’ve balanced study with social time. I’m part of RAPS (RMIT Association of Pharmacy Students), which has given me the chance to socialise with other pharmacy students.
My dream job is to work in a hospital pharmacy, and I’m hoping to specialise in oncology.
