Make your mark in pharmacy

National board members are integral to the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme).

If you would like to help protect the health and safety of the public, maintain public confidence in the pharmacy profession and ensure standards of practice are upheld, you should consider seeking appointment as a board member.

Your contribution to health practitioner regulation could involve:

  • setting national registration standards for pharmacists
  • developing guidance for pharmacists
  • managing complaints/notifications about the health, performance or conduct of pharmacists, or
  • other functions of the Pharmacy Board of Australia (the Board).

The infographic below illustrates how you could make your mark in pharmacy as either a practitioner or community member of the Board. Find out more from Pharmacy Board members whose terms are coming to an end.

Upcoming Board vacancies have been advertised and will close on 19 February 2018. To learn more about how to apply go to the Statutory appointments page on the AHPRA website.

The National Scheme has a commitment to increasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ leadership and voices. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are strongly encouraged to apply, as are people from rural or regional areas in Australia.

You can find out more about the different pharmacy regulators and stakeholders in Australia on the Board’s website.
