Deputy Director of Pharmacy
St Vincent's Hospital
Master of Clinical Pharmacy 2005

I could see that employers were seeking postgraduate qualifications for more senior roles, so I enrolled in the Master of Clinical Pharmacy.

In my joint role, I am responsible for a team of clinical pharmacists and answer drug enquiries from doctors, nurses and pharmacists across the Eastern Health network.

Having worked at St Vincent's, the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and overseas, I knew employers preferred candidates with postgraduate qualifications for senior roles. My master's improved my presentation and evidence-based medication skills and gave me a thirst for knowledge.
