Develop your clinical practice further by completing this programme that combines workplace-based learning with academic studies and is aligned with Health Education England’s Newly Qualified Pharmacist Pathway and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Post-registration Foundation Curriculum.

This programme caters for pharmacists employed in secondary or tertiary care settings and allows you to develop your practice as a clinical pharmacist. Whilst it is primarily tailored to pharmacists in the early stages of their career, it is not exclusive to these individuals. Highlights of this programme include:

  • Use of blended learning, which combines workplace-based learning, university-based workshops and self-directed online learning. This approach allows integration of theory and practice and a degree of flexibility since students can align studying the online learning materials with practice-based activities and current rotations

  • Interactive and stimulating workshops designed and delivered by experienced and specialist practising pharmacists

  • Use of workplace-based learning and regular formative feedback to build on the knowledge, skills, behaviours and experiences gained during your undergraduate and pre-registration years

  • The option of completing an Independent Prescribing Pathway (accredited by the GPhC) during the second year of the programme

  • Benefit from over 30 years’ experience in providing clinical pharmacy training

  • Provision of training to Workplace Education Supervisors

This programme will enhance your knowledge of therapeutics, powers of communication, critical thinking and problems solving skills. By promoting an understanding of the inter-disciplinary nature of healthcare, your appreciation of the problems encountered by other healthcare professionals will grow. The programme encourages a rigorous scientific approach to clinical pharmaceutical problems and the need to develop logical arguments, to enable you to optimise medicines for patients with complex problems and multiple co-morbidities. You will be able to promote and assess clinical pharmacy services and make evidence-based recommendations to benefit both your patients and place of work.

The School of Pharmacy and Biomoleclar Sciences has established the Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics Research Group.
