Excellence in Pharmaceutical Care

New Zealand's National School of Pharmacy aims to achieve excellence in pharmaceutical care and care of pharmaceuticals through excellence in research and research informed teaching. We have expertise in the pharmaceutical sciences, clinical pharmacy and social pharmacy.

The school of pharmacy offers a four year undergraduate Bachelor of Pharmacy degree (Information sheet - PDF) as well as various postgraduate clinical and social pharmacy qualifications and research degrees such as PhDs. The undergraduate degree enrols students from all regions across New Zealand and also offers a number of international places. Pharmacists play an important part in the health workforce in providing access to medicines, optimising use of medicines and ensuring quality of medicines and do so through a variety of roles including services relating to: primary health care, medicines management, community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, border patrol ... as well as new roles in prescribing.
