Welcome from the Dean
Congratulations on making the decision to enrol for postgraduate study at Monash University's Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. You are joining hundreds of your colleagues on a journey where you will have the opportunity to explore areas of interest, develop your career potential, and gain a valuable postgraduate qualification.
You will have the resources and support of the faculty's Experiential Development and Graduate Education (EDGE) unit behind you as you undertake your studies. EDGE is run by a team of practicing healthcare professionals, all of whom have extensive experience in clinical education. The team is supported by a large network of practitioners whose expertise is available to you in a variety of ways. The teaching staff are available to support you on your learning journey and you should contact them whenever you need assistance.
The Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is a founding member of the National Alliance for Pharmacy Education (NAPE). We are collaborating with The University of Queensland, The University of Sydney, and University of South Australia to deliver high quality postgraduate education. As a student this means you get the benefit of the expertise of four major Australian universities contributing to your education. NAPE believes that ready access to cutting edge university postgraduate award courses, including intern training programs, is crucial for healthcare professionals seeking career progression.
Undertaking postgraduate study can be daunting, but the faculty offers a wide range of services and support systems. This online orientation should familiarise you with some of the key services.
All the best with your studies.
