Course summary

Our MPhil Pharmacy Practice programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve the practise of pharmacy, the prescribing of medicines to optimise therapy and how patients take their medicines. There are 3 working centres in Pharmacy Practice which include the Centre for Pharmacy Workforce Studies chaired by Dr Ellen Schafheutle , Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety chaired by Prof Darren Aschroft , and Prescribing and Patient Safety chaired by Dr Mary Tully. There is a lot of interplay between the centres so there is maximum impact to the patient and to the research. We work with patient groups, prescribers, and pharmacists to gather the necessary information to conduct research, but also healthcare databases to maximise the study population size for robust results. We have a diverse skill base including clinical and community pharmacists, biostatisticians, epidemiologist, qualitative specialist researchers and health economists.

The programme provides key transferable skills in areas such as commercial awareness, academic writing and public engagement. This training equips our postgraduates with the tools to progress beyond their research degree into influential positions within academia, industry and consultancy. The emphasis is on enhancing skills critical to developing early-stage researchers and professionals, whether they relate to effective communication, disseminating research findings and project management skills. Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
