Mission Statement

The Medicine Box aims to assist intern pharmacists across Australia in preparing for their intern training program and pre-registration examinations. The website will achieve this through:

  • Facilitating interns in the management of study plans and organization of study notes through providing structured revision resources.
  • Establishing an interactive online community where intern pharmacists can openly discuss about their pre-registration experience, registration requirements and other pharmacy-related issues.
  • Stimulating analytical discussion from young pharmacists relating to emerging challenges confronting the pharmacy profession including clinical, ethical, legal, financial aspects.
  • Providing guidance to interns regarding diversification of career options available after registration and the prospect of further education.
