Any comments about your Otago experience?

The Otago experience has prepared me well for my career as a pharmacist. The foundation of knowledge and ethics has been important in helping me navigate through a wide range in the pharmaceutical career: as a community pharmacist, public health pharmacist, private hospital pharmacist and in the pharmaceutical distribution line. Otago does not just prepare its students academically but the structure of the programme emphasizes a lot on communication skills, problem solving abilities, adaptability and the professional responsibility of a pharmacist.

Any other comments?

I am proud to have graduated from Otago University School of Pharmacy and always appreciate the input that our lecturers and colleagues have given us.
