The Australian Pharmacy Council (APC) is the trusted, independent accrediting authority for pharmacy education and training in Australia.
We set the standards for pharmacy education and we assess and examine the knowledge and competency of Australian and overseas-trained pharmacists to ensure they have the skills and knowledge to deliver effective health care that meets the changing needs of the community and are suitable to be registered in Australia. Our pharmacy and university stakeholders rely on us to continue our valuable evidence based work which has been entrusted to us by the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS).
APC accreditation underpins the safety and quality of health care for the Australian public because we ensure that the university sector is delivering the right curriculum that educates future graduates with evidence-based pharmacy programs that meet Australian standards.
