I love what I do because I get to help people.
After graduating from RMIT, I was fortunate to find an internship role at The Royal Melbourne Hospital.
My role allows me to apply the knowledge I gained during my program in a clinical setting and to be a part of a healthcare team, working closely with doctors, nurses, speech pathologists, occupational therapists and social workers.
Hospital based pharmacy roles are competitive and being able to work at one of Melbourne’s major hospitals is very rewarding.
A highlight of my studies at RMIT was the opportunity to undertake a research project at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
I also completed work placements in hospitals and community pharmacies as part of the program. These placements helped me gain valuable experience and gave me the opportunity to apply the knowledge I had gained in class.
At RMIT, the teachers worked hard to ensure that we had the right clinical knowledge and skills needed for the workplace.
I was also part of the RMIT Association of Pharmacy Students. The organisation was created by the students, for the students, and helped organise study resources, fundraisers and social activities. Being part of this was a lot of fun.
To succeed in pharmacy, you need to study hard and consistently but you’ll be rewarded for your efforts.
