CSU's Master of Pharmacy is designed to provide a flexible structure for pharmacists wishing to undertake further studies in the pharmaceutical sciences or pharmacy practice, suited to their individual needs and scope of practice.
CSU's Master of Pharmacy is designed to provide qualified pharmacists with the opportunity to undertake research, specifically tailored to their individual interests and/or scope of practice.
This course offers the following specialisations:
Students will be introduced to various methodological approaches, both qualitative and quantitative, in health research and gain an understanding of research design, gaining ethical approval, implementation and analysis before conducting their own research.
In coordination with a supervisor, students will develop a topic review and background study covering the recent advances in their chosen area of specialisation. Students are required to write a literature review, present a poster, and prepare a seminar on a selected topic. This can include experiential placements to learn specific techniques as appropriate.
Students will undertake independent research in an aspect of pharmacy related to their specialisation, developed in conjunction with and approved by the supervisory team. The study involves the collection, analysis and interpretation of new data. Students will be expected to relate their study to practical issues affecting their profession.
Intending applicants should initially contact Associate Professor Jenny Wilkinson to discuss their proposed area of specialisation and arrange for further discussions with appropriate supervisors.
For each 8 point subject at CSU, students should normally expect to spend between 140-160 hours engaged in the specified learning and assessment activities (such as attending lectures or residential schools, assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, assignments or examinations). The student workload for some subjects may vary from these norms as a result of approved course design.
Students will be assessed on the basis of completed assignments, examinations, workplace learning, or other methods as outlined in specific subject outlines.
Where applicable, students are responsible for travel and accommodation costs involved in workplace learning experiences, or attending residential schools (distance education students).
Expectations relating to academic, workplace learning, time and cost requirements for specific subjects are provided in the subject abstracts and in course materials.
