To many people, a pharmacist is someone who wears a white coat and works behind a counter filling our prescriptions, or providing advice to treat common ailments. We put our faith into a pharmacist, and don’t normally take the time to think about what it takes to be one.
Pharmacy is one of the most trusted professions in Australia and has had a strong presence in the community for 150 years.
Pharmacy is more than preparing or dispensing drugs and reaches far beyond the community shop-front level. Although some areas of pharmacy are not widely recognised, they often contribute to the better running of our everyday lives.
