As healthcare rapidly evolves, the role of professionals in pharmacy is becoming more diverse. With the development of complex new therapies such as advanced therapy products, it is foreseen that novel transdisciplinary roles will emerge, requiring skilled candidates with concept of medication knowledge, healthcare system, drug development and more.

The Master of Advanced Pharmacy programme aims to equip our students for essential roles in medication management and to support the evolving needs of the healthcare system and patients. This programme provides postgraduate training that students can customize to their professional needs in pharmacy practice, which may be in hospital, community, the pharmaceutical industry, or innovative transdisciplinary roles.

The Master of Advanced Pharmacy programme will have 3 structured streams: Clinical Practice, Community Health, and Pharmaceutical Medicine. Candidates who wish to individualize their exposure to the types of course and do not satisfy the requirements of any of the 3 streams shall be regarded as Generalists.

Mode of Attendance

This programme will be offered full-time (normally 1 year) or part-time (normally 2 years). 

Classes will be held on weeknights. Site visits, workshops and tutorials will be occasionally planned for Saturday afternoons.
