Course summary

This part-time, flexible programme is a professional doctorate equivalent to a traditional PhD, which aims to develop experienced, working registered pharmacists into effective researchers through successful completion of appropriate distance e-learning material, a systematic review of an agreed research theme and a workplace based research project relevant to their area of practice.

The programme aims to develop experienced, employed registered pharmacists into effective researchers through successful completion of appropriate taught modules, including: research training, a systematic review of an agreed research theme, a workplace-based research project relevant to their area of practice as agreed with their academic supervisor and the College. As confirmed at local, regional and national (DH) levels successful completion of the proposed DPharm would optimise the candidate's position to achieve Consultant Pharmacist status within the NHS and further the research base in Pharmacy Practice and Medicines Management.

Due to the flexible nature of the programme this research can be done part-time to fit around your working patterns. The programme runs over 4 years part time for students who already hold a relevant MSc qualification; 5 years part time for students who hold a relevant PG Diploma; 6 years part time for students with minimum entry qualifications (PG Certificate).
