My experience with the Diploma was fully positive. I already miss regular visits to Bradford and the opportunity to interact with peers. I have learned a lot in many aspects and feel that my professional confidence has been given a significant boost. As to my career, I have already come across and accepted the exciting challenge of becoming a full-time GP practice pharmacist. Joanna Domzal-Jamroz, Clinical Pharmacy (Community)

Learning and assessment

Learning and teaching includes an induction day, distance learning materials and activities presented via the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), a collaborative learning day with members of the MSc in Clinical Pharmacy (Secondary Care) programme, and work-based learning including formative assessment and reflection on learning experiences.

In years 2 and 3 of the programme you can choose modules which reflect individual learning needs, and take into consideration your own learning style in order to determine the method of delivery of the materials. There will be many opportunities within this for you to participate in inter professional learning with other health care professionals through modules within the Faculty of Health Studies.

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Foundation Pharmacy Framework (FPF) is a comprehensive summary of attributes required of clinical pharmacists, and has been used extensively in the development of the programme. We assess students in a variety of different ways,
including e-portfolio and written assignments. You will be given summative and formative feedback throughout the duration of the programme.

You will have an academic tutor assigned to support you throughout the programme. 

The Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) including Canvas and PebblePad (for e-Portfolios) will support students learning at a distance.

Library facilities are available online or on campus. Students are also able to access a range of study days organised for secondary care pharmacists as CPD days.
