Course summary

Applied pharmacology is the study of how drugs and medications affect how our body works. Drugs can be used to both maintain a healthy lifestyle and treat or cure disease.

This course will provide you with the skills to work in a variety of areas related to the pharmaceutical industry and the broader area of research.

Aside from just focussing on drugs, this course uniquely integrates a focus on nutritional factors which also impact on people's health.

For 2019, this course is accepting applications for years 2 and 3 only.
