History of CaSPA

Since its establishment in 2004, the Canberra Student Pharmacy Association has been representing students undertaking the Master of Pharmacy Course at the University of Canberra. However, it is with great excitement that in 2013 the University of Canberra introduced its Bachelor of Pharmacy course. Through small beginnings, with a class size of 12, CaSPA has now grown to represent over 70 ‘pharmacists in training’.
