Learning and assessment
The mode of assessment will vary depending on your personal choice of modules. On induction, you will be guided through a learning needs analysis to help identify the most appropriate module choices for you.
Work based assessments will include pharmaceutical care plans, reflective journals and case based discussions. You will also undertake written assignments and OSCEs in some modules.
The topic for the final year Quality and Service Improvement project will be agreed between you, your GP Practice and the module tutor, allowing the outcomes of your project to direct and evaluate service improvement within your own workplace.
The School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences employs experienced pharmacists working in primary care and has close links with primary care practice to guide you in career choices.
You will have an academic tutor assigned to support you throughout the programme. You will map yourself against the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Advanced Pharmacy Framework, which will prepare you for application to the RPS Faculty.
The School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences has an excellent national and international reputation in practice research.
The most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014) exercise rated 92% of our Pharmacy research as of international quality/world-leading.
Staff teaching on the programme are active members of the School’s Medicines Optimisation Research Group.
