Abstract

Students’ reasons for choosing pharmacy as a course of study and career, together with professional and educational perspectives, were evaluated by survey and compared longitudinally between the start and end of a New Zealand BPharm degree. In contrast with a number of studies in medical education, findings indicate persistence of patient-oriented, altruistic and empathetic attitude across years of study. Entrepreneurial intentions remain high, especially among male students. It is suggested that integration of science and communication aspects during later years of study, together with recognition of pharmacy’s scope of career pathways may help to engender commitment and optimism towards a pharmacy career.
