Pharmacy refers to the professional preparation and dispensation of medicinal drugs. Pharmaceutical professionals make recommendations for products to treat a wide range of illnesses, ailments and injuries, as well as dispensing and providing advice on prescription-only medications. They communicate with clients to understand their needs before making decisions based on extensive knowledge and training.
Pharmacy courses equip students with a comprehensive understanding of how drugs and medications affect the human body. Graduates will be prepared to provide advice, recommend courses of treatment and fill prescriptions, either as a fully-fledged pharmacist or a pharmacy/dispensary assistant.
