Masters degrees in Pharmacy allow postgraduates to learn the skills to prepare and dispense pharmaceutical drugs and prescription medications. They also include instruction in the principles of medicinal chemistry, drug behaviour and mixing.
Related subjects include Pharmacology, Community Pharmacy and Global Pharmacy. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Medicine or Biology.
Pharmacy is an essential practice, with pharmacists working across many healthcare systems and service provisions. Practical training usually involve practice in evidence-based medicine and diagnostics, where you will learn about the ways different drugs react together and how to manage dosage.
The importance of Pharma on a global scale is also considered. For example, you might analyse the difference in availability of drugs across different countries, or the implications of managing patients at different stages of care. You may also explore issues such as the affordability of medicine, population healthcare and personalised healthcare.
Traditional careers include clinical practice within schools, health centres and hospitals, as well as community work and humanitarian aid. You might also take up a role within supply chain management and regulation for the pharmaceutical sector.
