APC Skills Assessment
APC plays a key role in protecting the public safety by ensuring high standards of pharmacy education.
It’s APC’s role to assess the competency of overseas-trained pharmacists.
Our assessment processes are evidence-based to ensure overseas-trained pharmacists have the skills and knowledge to deliver effective healthcare that meets the changing needs of the community and that the skills and expertise meet public safety standards.
APC ensures that fully-trained pharmacists from overseas who want to work in Australia meet our standards in Pharmacy.
APC sets the standards that ensures our future pharmacists are work-ready and competent to deliver effective health care and to protect the public safety.
Our exams are evidence-based and scheduled regularly throughout the year.
APC ensures that our exams and standards are contemporary for current pharmacy practice.
It is our responsibility to ensure that pharmacists we deem competent, deliver effective health care and to protect the public safety.
APC is responsible for the accreditation of pharmacy education in Australia and New Zealand.
On behalf of the Pharmacy Board of Australia (PBA) and the Pharmacy Council of New Zealand (PCNZ), APC evaluates a range of pharmacy education programs from pharm degrees to extended practice programs for prescribing.
APC is the trusted, independent organisation for setting the standards for pharmacy education. Our pharmacy and university stakeholders rely on us to continue our valuable, evidence-based work.
