The School's next Medicines Clinic will be held in 2016 will be notified.
A registered pharmacist from the School of Pharmacy will provide a private and personal consultation, and answer any questions you may have about your medicines.
The School of Pharmacy has recently commenced running community clinics in medicines and health literacy. These clinics are funded by the School and from a grant from Ako Aotearoa* and are provided as a free service to Dunedin residents.
The purpose of the clinics is to provide an opportunity for the School to give back to the community of Dunedin. The School aims to achieve excellence in pharmaceutical care both in terms of scholarship (research and teaching) and practise. Provision of a clinic allows the School to reach out to the community and provide expert support that links to and complements the activities of community pharmacy.
Additional benefits of the clinics programme:
- To provide a placement opportunity for our 4th year students.
- To provide an opportunity for the School to work closely with our local community of pharmacists to promote health care to our wider community.
- To provide an opportunity for students thinking of doing pharmacy to see how the School is involved in the provision of pharmacy services.
- To provide an opportunity for our staff who are practicing pharmacists to practise their clinical expertise as a recognised activity within the School.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss how you can help the School help our community.
