Monash University extends a warm welcome to those attending our MyDispense symposium. From 17-19 July, 2016 we are using the beautiful Monash Prato Centre to host the first MyDispense symposium. MyDispense is a free online learning tool developed by Monash University now being used internationally. The symposium is an opportunity to be part of an international community committed to working collaboratively to improve pharmacy education. The symposium provides an opportunity for input into how MyDispense software can better optimised and developed to suit international teaching needs. We look forward to working with colleagues from around the world and to learn from each other.
