Course summary

Our MSc/PGDip Clinical Pharmacy course and offers a mix of clinical, applied practice, public health and research units, giving you the knowledge and skills to be an excellent clinical pharmacist. You will also cover applied practice topics including health economics, public health, pharmacy practice research, training others and organisational influences on healthcare. If you want to undertake research, you will be supported by one of our leading academic researchers to undertake a small-scale clinical research project to complete the MSc award. Following four compulsory units in Year 1, you can choose from 11 units in Year 2 to tailor the course to your own interests. There are two learning routes described below to suit pharmacists in all patient-facing roles and with differing work demands. Online distance learning This is a completely online route and allows you to study from home at times convenient to you, which is ideal for international students, shift workers and those based outside the Manchester area. Interactive online learning supplemented by webinars will enhance your skills in optimising drug therapy and clinical problem-solving. This route is open to pharmacists in any patient-facing role. Blended learning This route consists of six campus-based study days per year and interactive online learning that will enhance your clinical knowledge, teaching you to optimise drug therapy and develop your problem-solving skills. You need to be in a patient-facing role and will need both a suitable work environment and work-based tutor. Study days in Manchester are mandatory. This route is generally aimed at Band 6 and 7 pharmacists who are seeking to develop within the NHS. Both routes are open to qualified pharmacists who would like to develop their clinical skills and enhance their practice.
