Taking Pharmaceutical Innovation to the Masses

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

General levels of "pharmaceuticals literacy" are not high in contemporary societies. To address this educational need, in 2012 the University of Western Australia introduced an innovative multidisciplinary course for undergraduates within any degree program entitled PHAR1101: Drugs that Changed the World. Now ranking among the largest courses at the institution, PHAR1101 enrollments will likely approach 1000 students in 2017.
