You'll also undertake a Period of Learning in Practice (PLP). The aim is to provide you with opportunities to develop competencies in prescribing. This period focuses on the patient group(s) in which you'll be expecting to prescribe.

Facilities

Our high-quality, dedicated facilities include a dispensary with consulting area, clean room facility and pharmaceutical processing and analysis suites. You will have first-hand experience of the full range of professional activities in a modern training environment.

Entry requirements

All pharmacists must meet the following requirements:
- current registration with GPhC &/or PSNI as a practising pharmacist

- have at least two years appropriate patient orientated experience practising in a hospital, community or primary care setting following their pre-registration year

- have identified an area of clinical practice and need in which to develop their prescribing skills

- have up-to-date clinical, pharmacological and pharmaceutical knowledge relevant to their intended area of prescribing practice

- demonstrate how they reflect on their own performance and take responsibility for their own continuing professional development (CPD)

- demonstrate how they'll develop their own networks for support, reflection and learning, including prescribers from other professions.

Course content

The course of study involves pre-residential course activity, distance learning material, two residential periods and a period of learning in practice, under the supervision of a designated medical practitioner. Students will be awarded 30 ScotCat credits on completion of the course.

Residential training

This element of the course is at Scottish Masters (SHEM) level 5 throughout. It's delivered through two residential periods that are taught here at the University of Strathclyde.

The first residential period of five days includes four classes, worth five credits each:
- therapeutics from a choice of cardiovascular, respiratory disease and infection, rheumatology, diabetes, substance misuse, renal medicine and palliative care
- communicating with patients & colleagues
- prescribing & public health
- care planning

Full attendance during the residential period is essential.

The second residential period of half a day will normally take place approximately six weeks after the first residential period. It involves peer review sessions designed to demonstrate clinical and ethical practice.

Period of Learning in Practice (PLP)

The aim is to provide you with opportunities to develop competencies in prescribing. This period focuses on the patient group(s) in which you'll be expecting to prescribe. The PLP starts after the first residential period.

The PLP is made up of a series of sessions (combination of full and/or half days) that involve prescribing and clinical activities. This should equate to a minimum of 12 days, but is subject to decision by the pharmacist and their supervisor based on the challenges of the individual prescribing roles being adopted by different pharmacists.

This PLP time will be used to develop clinical skills including:
- accurate assessment
- history-taking
- recognition and response to common signs and symptoms and formulation of a working diagnosis

During this period you'll be supervised by a designated medical prescriber who will be responsible for confirming your competence to practise.

A portfolio providing evidence that the required time has been spent (minimum 90 hours) and the learning outcomes achieved will be submitted along with a statement of assessment from the designated medical supervisor. The assessment will confirm the pharmacist's clinical competence in the area(s) for which they intend to prescribe.

The period in practice must be completed within 12 months of the residential course.

Assessment

Some assessments will be completed before attending the residential period and some will be completed after.

This programme in Child Health reflects the need for the NHS to deliver basic academic training in paediatrics to all trainees in Scotland, and to formally cover the level 2 Framework of Competencies for Training in Paediatrics outlined by the accrediting body, Royal College of Paediatrics & Child Health (RCPCH).

Why this programme

-The Certificate in Child Health is run jointly by the University of Glasgow and NHS Education for Scotland.
-Scottish Deaneries have offered support to this programme, and will request that all paediatric trainees in their Level 2 Specialist Training complete this programme as part of their professional training.
-If you are a doctor in a training programme for paediatrics currently working as a Specialist Trainee (ST) in the UK, this programme is designed for you: in particular for ST trainees post-MRCPCH who are in ST years 3, 4 or 5. The programme may also be useful for suitably qualified overseas applicants.
-You will gain a qualification which, in conjunction with appropriate clinical training, will satisfy the General Medical Council / RCPCH and allow you to move on to your Level 3 training.

Programme structure

The Certificate is a mix of online and face-to-face teaching. Twenty 6-hour days of face-to-face teaching are delivered through the academic year, and these are supplemented by online lectures, formative exercises and compulsory reading. This allows a collegiate atmosphere to develop with less disruption to clinical experience. This certificate course will reward the trainees 60 units of credit on completion.

The content is split into five compulsory sections
-Public health, mental health, child protection and looked after children (LAC)
-Growth, nutrition, metabolic, gastroenterology, diabetes and endocrine
-Development, neurology and senses
-Respiratory and cardiovascular
-Infectious disease, immunology, renal, haematology, oncology, rheumatology and adolescent medicine

A trainee must take all sections spanning a maximum of four academic years but typically over two years although some trainees will manage to complete all section during one academic year.

This two-year part-time masters programme, taught entirely online, is offered by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the University of Edinburgh, and leads to the degree of Master of Surgery (ChM).

Based on the UK Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum, it provides the opportunity for trainees in urology to select those advanced modules relevant to their declared specialty and supports learning for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) examinations.

The programme is designed to run alongside clinical training and complement in-the-workplace assessment.

Online learning

Our online learning technology is fully interactive, award-winning and enables you to communicate with our highly qualified teaching staff from the comfort of your own home or workplace.

Our online students not only have access to Edinburgh’s excellent resources, but also become part of a supportive online community, bringing together students and tutors from around the world.

Programme structure

The programme runs on a semester basis over two years and involves approximately 10 hours of study each week, in a flexible modular manner. It is anticipated that some of this study would receive credit or mirror 'in-the-workplace' activities.

The online distance learning nature of this programme is perfect for doctors working unsociable shift patterns. You will have access to high-quality, interactive online resources, e-journals and online textbooks, as well as dedicated technological support.

Year 1

Compulsory modules will cover the basic elements of the specialty of urology, including oncology, andrology, stone disease, reconstructive urology, paediatric urology and renal transplantation. Each module is based around relevant surgical cases and includes discussion board and video master classes.

Year 2

Academic modules will explore research and teaching methodology, whilst enabling students to develop the ability to analyse published evidence and enhance their interactive and written clinical communication skills. Students will also have the opportunity to complete an academic research project in Year 2 e.g. Original research or a Systematic Review in a relevant area of work. Following completion of the programme, students are encouraged to seek publication of their study in a peer-reviewed journal.

Students are supported throughout the programme through asynchronous discussions with e-tutors who are all leading clinicians in their field. Students also have access to a large learning resource, including subscriptions to key online books and journals. A written examination (MCQ) is held in the second year, following completion of core modules.

Career opportunities

Graduates will be able to demonstrate in-depth knowledge of their chosen surgical subspecialty and to apply this knowledge to the systematic assessment and management of surgical patients in the elective, urgent and emergency clinical setting.
