Postgraduate Certificate in Prescribing Studies


Course Description

This course is open to registered pharmacists with at least two years’ post-registration experience in a clinical, patient-facing role.

Upon successful completion of the 40 credit module, you will be awarded the Practice Certificate in Independent Prescribing from the University of Wolverhampton.

Your name will then be forwarded to the Registrar of the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC), and you will be eligible for annotation on the GPhC Register as an Independent Prescriber.

This entitles you, with the support of your employer (unless self-employed), to practice as a Supplementary or Independent Prescriber.

In order to be awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Prescribing Studies, you will also have to study an 20 credit module on Pharmacoepidemiology.

Successful completion of both modules will lead to the award of the Postgraduate Certificate in Prescribing Studies, which will provide evidence to employing organisations of your ability to practice (including prescribing) at an advanced level in your chosen therapeutic area.

However, this is entirely optional and you may choose to exit after completing only the Practice Certificate in Independent Prescribing (module code 7PY019).

Visit the Postgraduate Certificate in Prescribing Studies page on the University of Wolverhampton website for more details!

Entry Requirements

You must be registered as a pharmacist with either the GPhC or the PSNI, and have a minimum of two years’ post-registration experience in a clinical, patient-facing role. We require the written support of your employer (unless self-employed) to undertake this course, and you must have the support and agreement from a suitably experienced medical doctor in your chosen field of clinical practice who is willing and eligible to act as your Designated Medical Practitioner (DMP) for the Practice Certificate in Independent Prescribing.
