On 9 March 2016, the
University of South Australia (UniSA) hosted a celebration dinner for the Master
of Clinical Pharmacy programme’s graduates and graduating students. The dinner
also celebrated 10 years of collaboration between UniSA and NHG College in
developing clinical pharmacists for the Singapore health system.
To date, 68 pharmacists
from across our healthcare clusters have enrolled in the programme, of which 42
have graduated from the programme. All of them have gone on to contribute back
to their institutions, working directly with physicians, other health
professionals, and patients to ensure that the medications prescribed for
patients contribute to the best possible health outcomes.
Held at Raffles Town
Club, the event was hosted by Associate Head of Academic from UniSA’s School of
Pharmacy and Medical Sciences, Associate Prof Anthony (Tony) Woods, and the
Programme Director of the Master of Clinical Pharmacy, Mr Stefan Kowalski. Along
with them, the event was also attended by 17 of the programme’s graduates and
graduating students, together with their family and friends.
NHG Group Chief Education Officer, Associate Prof
Nicholas Chew, presented tokens of appreciation to UniSA’s Programme Director,
Mr Stefan Kowalski, and NUH Pharmacy’s Deputy Director, Mr Wu Tuck Seng, to
thank them for their contributions to the programme for the past 10 years.
