Course summary

Overview

Our Advanced Clinical Pharmacy Practice programme was developed following extensive consultation with pharmacists and their employers both within and beyond the United Kingdom. It provides a flexible study pathway that is designed to develop the therapeutic knowledge and clinical skills of pharmacists to an advanced level. The modules are designed to help pharmacists to acquire and demonstrate the advanced-level competencies defined in the Royal Pharmaceutical Society's Advanced Pharmacy Framework.

The programme is an amalgamation of our previous clinical pharmacy and community pharmacy programmes and is open to pharmacists in all employment sectors.

The PG Diploma is studied entirely off-campus by distance-learning and is therefore open to pharmacists both within and outside the United Kingdom. Alternatively, students in Great Britain may select the Independent Prescribing option in year 2, which includes a compulsory 5-day clinical skills residential at Queen's.
