Course summary

A professional doctorate provides a programme of advanced study and research, equally rigorous to the purely research oriented PhD. The taught modules aim to develop practitioners’ skills and knowledge in the key areas of advanced practice needed for career development whilst the research component builds research skills and other transferable skills such as project management, problem solving, information management and academic writing.

The DPharm will provide the opportunity for pharmacists to achieve the highest academic qualification that is directly related to their professional practice and career development.

TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT

A variety of formative and summative assessment methods are used in Part 1 including reflective essays, project proposal and project report. A Reflective Portfolio that spans Years 1 and 2 of the programme is important to assessing your ability to relate theory to practice, and self-evaluation of, and reflection on, your own performance and CPD needs. Each of the modes of assessment in Part 1 contributes to the overall development of the cognitive, intellectual and practical skills that you will require to pursue a doctoral thesis in Part 2. In accordance with University Regulations, you will attend a viva voce as part of the formal examination of your final thesis.
