Rural Pharmacy Student Placement Allowance and Administrative Support to Pharmacy Schools
In Australia, pharmacy students are required to undertake placements in community and/or hospital pharmacy practice as part of their course. At present, most pharmacy students undertake this placement in metropolitan areas, largely because of the financial burden imposed through costs incurred through travel and accommodation in regional areas.
The Rural Pharmacy Student Placement Allowance provides financial support to encourage and enable pharmacy programs at Australian Universities to deliver student placements in rural and remote communities. The allowance provides assistance with the travel and accommodation costs associated with undertaking a placement in a rural or remote area.
The Administrative Support to Pharmacy Schools component of the allowance is for Pharmacy Schools to maintain the administration of the program.
Interested students should contact their Pharmacy School for an application form and further information.
