LJMU was accredited as a Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Foundation School in June 2015. The MSc, PgDip and PgCert awards are mapped to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Foundation Pharmacy Framework. Combining theory-based learning and work-based practice, the programme will enable you to promote and assess clinical pharmacy services and make evidence-based recommendations to benefit your patients and your place of work. This workplace education model allows pharmacists to build on the knowledge, skills, behaviours and experiences gained during undergraduate and pre-registration years and focuses on the first 1,000 days of a pharmacist’s practice.

As an accredited RPS Foundation School, LJMU works in partnership with employers to provide quality workplace education and training infrastructures as well as training for practice-based tutors and assessments based on competency and performance.
