University of Otago Pharmacy graduates credit their degree with developing strong practical and analytical skills which have formed the backbone of their professional lives.
“Pharmacy has evolved from what it once was and there are so many avenues that pharmacists can undertake as a career. Knowing this fact is what drove me initially into pharmacy as a profession. And has it lived up to my expectations? Yes! There are no limitations in what pharmacists can do in their area of work, whether you’re in the community, industry, or hospital.”
