Employment success

UTS: Pharmacy’s first cohort completed the course in 2013. Since then, our graduates have experienced high demand from both the hospital and community pharmacy sectors. In 2016, 80% of final year students who were intending to work in pharmacy had secured jobs before they finished their degree. Of these, over one third had secured positions in hospital pharmacy. 

Feedback from the profession

Past President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia and Chair of the Pharmacy Industry Advisory Board Warwick Plunkett describes UTS graduates:
"They have sound professional experience and can hit the ground running – they bring added value to employers through an expanded professional services skill set. In a complex and competitive industry, UTS graduates can provide enhanced care and remunerated services such as Home Medication Reviews and Diabetes Meds Checks, which is exactly what employers are seeking in new graduates.”

“My experience on clinical placement at the Royal North Shore Hospital was the reason why I wanted to become a hospital pharmacist, so it’s a real thrill to have been offered a position. Feedback from my application was that I was capable and a critical thinker and the team were confident I could start applying my knowledge straight away."
