The aim of this course 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.
Our course serves to enhance your clinical knowledge, teaching you to optimise drug therapy and develop your problem solving skills. You will explore a variety of health services issues, including health economics, patient perspectives on health, and organisational influences on healthcare.
The course 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. You will engage in practical experience based in your workplace, supported by experienced practitioners and workplace tutors (the provision of a work-based tutor to support you is mandatory for acceptance on to the course). In the second year, there are optional units offered, which may be online or blended learning.
One of our units, People Development , is available as a standalone CPD unit. Please contact us for further information about this.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of courses lasting more than a year for UK/EU students (fees are fixed for international students, for the course duration at the year of entry).
For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees .
Always contact the department via email@example.com if you are unsure which fee applies to your qualification award and method of attendance.
CPD funding is available for pharmacists employed by North West England NHS trusts through an NHS Health Education West Service Level Agreement.
