Course summary

About this course

Develop your clinical practice further on a programme that combines workplace-based learning with academic studies and is mapped to professional development frameworks.

MSc Clinical Pharmacy for Secondary and Tertiary Care (PgCert, PgDip) allows you to develop your practice as a clinical pharmacist and is mapped to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s (RPS) Foundation Pharmacy Framework. The programme caters for pharmacists employed in secondary or tertiary care settings and whilst it is primarily tailored for pharmacists in the early stages of their career, pharmacists at any stage of their career can apply. Highlights of this programme include:

  • Use of blended learning, which combines workplace-based learning, self-directed study and university-based study sessions. This approach allows integration of theory and practice and a degree of flexibility since students can align studying the online learning materials with their 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 25 years’ experience in providing clinical pharmacy training

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.

Assessment

How learning is monitored on your programme

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.

The programme utilises a range of assessment methods including: written reports, reflective essays, portfolios, case presentations, written examinations and Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs). All assessments are moderated internally and externally, with merits and distinctions being awarded for very good and exceptional overall performance respectively. You will accumulate credits as you complete each module. The MSc research project requires the submission of a project report.
