Why study the Graduate Certificate in Pharmacy Practice

This program provides intern pharmacists with specialised training and skills in pharmacy practice. The program combines academic excellence with pharmacy practice to provide intern pharmacists the opportunity to gain a formal postgraduate qualification.
