Fieldwork/clinical placements provide you with important opportunities to learn through direct experience. During placement, you’ll put your professional role, knowledge and skills into practice in authentic pharmacy work settings. You’ll engage with people from diverse backgrounds, including other health professionals you may work alongside in the future.
Please read the following essential requirements for fieldwork/clinical placement before you enrol in a course.
You do not need to meet these requirements before you enrol, but it’s important you understand your obligations so you can successfully complete the placement component of your course.
At the end of your first year pf your Master of Pharmacy degree you will complete a community pharmacy placement under the supervision of a practising pharmacist to develop skills in the clinical setting.
Please refer to the following statements on the essential requirements for the fieldwork component of this course:

In the field, you will be representing yourself, your course or chosen profession, and Curtin University. You are expected to demonstrate professional attitudes and behaviour at all times.
As a student, you must satisfactorily complete all fieldwork activities, pass assessment requirements and demonstrate attributes associated with professional conduct. To facilitate this, you should refer to your unit outline, Blackboard and the fieldwork manual, and read the important information on essential fieldwork requirements.
