New training for pharmacists to re-enter the profession

Back to previous page

June 27, 2018

Pharmacists seeking to re-enter the profession after a period of extended leave will now be better equipped thanks to the latest course offered by the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA).

When returning from an extended break from practice, pharmacists can earn up to 74 Group 2 CPD points in PSA’s Pharmacy Re-entry course, which provides clinical, legislative and practice updates to support their return to the profession.

PSA National President Dr Shane Jackson said the course includes online learning and a two-day workshop offered nationally, along with tailored support from a PSA pharmacist.

“The course structure is very flexible so pharmacists can fit it around work and family commitments,” Dr Jackson said.

“If you’ve been on an extended break such as parental leave, overseas travel or work in another sector, this course will support you to get up-to-speed and re-enter the workforce.”

After successfully completing the course, pharmacists will be better equipped to return to the profession and undertake the exams should the requirement for assessment of competence be issued by the Pharmacy Board of Australia.

The Pharmacy Re-entry course is only available to members of PSA, the peak national body for pharmacists.

The course is open to non-Australian pharmacists and will cover the legislative exam, but some overseas pharmacists will need to complete an accredited intern training program.

Members can enrol online at www.psa.org.au/public-cpd/re-entry or email training@psa.org.au for more information.
