The aim of the programme is to promote excellence in the clinical and leadership skills of pharmacists who will take part in the future development of pharmacy services in the NHS.
The programme serves to enhance student's clinical knowledge, teaching them to optimise drug therapy and develop their problem solving skills. A variety of health services issues are explored, including health economics, patient perspectives on health and organisational influences on healthcare.
The programme is delivered using a blended learning approach. In the first year each unit has two mandatory study days per unit, which will include small group tutorials, workshops and experience-based learning.
These will be supported by a structured online programme. Students will engage in practical experience based in their workplace supported by experienced practitioners and work place tutors (the provision of a work-based tutor to support the student is mandatory for acceptance on to the programme). In the second year there are optional units offered which may be online or blended learning.
All applicants must be able to meet the following requirements: have an honours degree in pharmacy at a minimum level of 2:2 or equivalent; have one year's post-registration experience (patient-facing); be registered as a pharmacist with the General Pharmaceutical Council (UK) or equivalent regulatory authority in the student's home country for international students; be in employment in a patient-facing capacity whilst enrolled on the programme; have a nominated work-based tutor to support them throughout the entire programme. Applications from international students will be considered on an individual basis.
