Description

2019 MyDispense
Team: Vivienne Mak, Tina Brock, Keith Sewell, Keenan Beaumont, Kaan Unugur, Marian Costelloe
The team was acknowledged for the development of MyDispense, an innovative online simulation for pharmacy students.

The simulation provides pharmacy students with a safe environment in which to build knowledge, improve cognitive proficiency and develop professional values and attitudes.

MyDispense is currently being used in 86 schools of pharmacy in 24 countries. To date 15,439 students have completed: 663,989 exercises globally. Four international MyDispense symposia have been held in Europe and Asia. The philosophy of sharing and collaboration that we value at Monash University has had huge benefits, not only for students, but also in the building of active educator communities who are working together to expand MyDispense and also create innovative content.
