"During my career as a pharmacist, I have developed strong interests in information literacy and communication, clinical problem-solving and quality improvement, and most recently the research-practice interface. This has led me back to tertiary study and in 2014 I embarked on a doctoral research program looking at the medicines information needs of health professionals in primary care."
Your Otago experience
"My first year of tertiary study was at the university in my home town and when I came to Otago for the Pharmacy Programme I noticed a really different, much friendlier vibe. I think with so many students away from home, people are more open to making new friends. The Otago student experience is definitely something special."
