Emily-Jane: There's actually an interesting story to why I chose doing my master pharmacy at UTS. Before I was enrolled I was actually going to do my Master's at another University. However I attained a job in community pharmacy and the interviewer said to me "Why aren't you doing your masters at UTS?", she told me that the UTS students have more practical experience they were more employable and so I switched to UTS and I think it was the best decision for my career.
Zoe: I chose to study a master's of Pharmacy UTS because I really liked how practical it was. From our first week we were in the pharmacy learning about how a pharmacy operates, and for me that was really great because I've never been a pharmacy before.
Lauren: So the master of pharmacy at UTSA allowed a clinical placement for me to go to Spain. Here I worked in a hospital for four weeks where I got to experience how the healthcare system worked, and also how other pharmacists work in different countries. I think this international placement really gave me a competitive advantage because I can see myself working overseas in the future, and this really set me up to do this later in my career.
?: So my future career goals are in community pharmacy in the business management side of things. Going on placement in Spain gave me great insight into the different medications that are out there and how pharmacists in Spain counsel on their medications as well. Seeing this enabled me to kind of reflect on what it's like in Spain and how it differs here in Australia, and grab the great things that they do over there in their culture and bring them back to Australia and implement them here.
