Like the other reviews stated, there is more study that is required compared to PHRM1012. However, this increase in workload is normal when moving from first year to second year. Unfortunately the lecturer/course coordinator doesn't seem to be interested in teaching. I say this because the lecturer (Leigh) sometimes didn't know what was going on with some of the assessment, and it felt like she was just there to fill the spot, rather than do her job as the course coordinator, to at least try and make the learning experience easier and more enjoyable. Her slides are also just a bunch of text, where she copied it from another lecturer. I don't expect a lecturer to hold your hand through the whole journey, but an effort must be made to help students learn better. The assessments are not too bad though if you do your part. The dispensing exam is just a pass/fail outcome, and even if you don't pass it the first time, you get 2 resits and then if you fail that, you can apply for a supplementary resit, but it shouldn't get to that outcome. The clinical overview was not too hard either and the only difficulty was trying to get it within the word count. It was nice that the lecturer allowed the cohort to submit a draft to get feedback, but it wasn't too much feedback. The written exam is your standard exam. If you study properly, you can get a good mark. However, when I did it, the lecturer examined us on a question where she explicitly said that it wasn't going to be on the exam. It was 2 marks only, but that could have been the deciding factor for someone who was at the boundary of two grades. The oral exam was surprisingly not too difficult and the examiners are people you have never met. Personally, I thought the oral exam was marked too easily, but maybe I think I could have done better. Overall, this is a course where you cannot rely on the lecturer. If you put in the hard work, follow the PMF, and study ahead, you can get the high score. Leaving everything last minute is definitely not recommended. There's just too much to remember. Furthermore, the lecturer doesn't seem too interested in doing her job as a lecturer, and seems more interested in activities outside of her job as a lecturer. A lecturer can make or break on whether a student will enjoy a subject, and in this case, it has resulted in the latter.

This subject is overwhelming. Such a big step up from PHRM1012. It's three lectures a week, plus the normal tutorials, however, now there's an extra assessment: dispensing exam- which was pretty cool and if you failed you can basically resit it until you pass (there's a limit eventually). For the oral exam though, omg...there are about 40 products that could be tested in the oral exam and you have to counsel a lot more this time: side effects, drug interactions etc and the marking was harder. The written exam was terrible, majority of people dreaded it and even contained calculations and written counselling for a prescription only product (just that itself takes about 30mins to write). All in all...DO NOT leave things to the last minute for this subject. There is just way too much content to remember.
