The Bachelor of Pharmacy (BPharm) programme aims to nurture competent graduates with solid knowledge of pharmacy as well as abilities to apply the core knowledge and skills for effective, humane and ethical delivery of pharmaceutical care. They will contribute both to the profession of pharmacy and to the overall health of the patient body by adopting the highest standard of professional practice.a
Local and Overseas Exposure
The new enrichment module will enable students to be involved in a local community service project of their own choices. The module provides them with the chance to engage in activities which benefit different groups in need while enhancing their exposure at the same time. In addition to local experiences, all our pharmacy students will have the opportunity to participate in an international exchange programme. It helps to broaden the students’ understanding of pharmaceutical and social conditions in different countries.
Placement, Clerkship and Research Project
As part of the curriculum, each pharmacy student will rotate between hospital pharmacy, community pharmacy and pharmaceutical industry for at least one week in each setting during the final year of study. In addition, students will have the opportunity to carry out a research project in a specialised area of their choices under the supervision of our academic staff.
Opportunity for Interprofessional Learning
The programme offers invaluable opportunities of interprofessional learning with students from medicine, nursing and Chinese medicine programmes. These interprofessional learning activities will utilise the expertise of students from different backgrounds and foster cooperation.
Students who have completed a full-time pharmacy degree and one additional year of internship are qualified as registered pharmacists in Hong Kong. Pharmacists are able to practice in a wide variety of areas, including academics / research, pharmaceutical industry, community pharmacy, hospital, department of health / drug office.
Graduates will be well prepared for continuous postgraduate training through a taught Master of Advanced Pharmacy programme or to pursue academic pharmacy by research postgraduate study.
