The University of Strathclyde has launched a new Advanced Clinical Pharmacy Practice postgraduate course. The University are keen to have some community pharmacists on board. The course has been designed in a modular fashion, offering an array of classes over a maximum of a 5-year period. This flexibility is what makes the course unique – it can be tailored to suit the needs and desired outcomes of any prospective student.
Successful completion of 60 credits from any combination of classes leads to a Postgraduate Certificate, 120 credits earns the student a Postgraduate diploma and completing the full course at 180 credits results in an MSc qualification. It’s not just about letters after your name though – the opportunity to come together with fellow pharmacists in a small peer-group learning environment to improve your practice and achieve your personal development goals isn’t one that comes along often.
The classes are grouped together in “Toolkits” which will arm students with the skills and experience they need in Therapeutics, Research and Health Service Quality Improvement. The Independent prescribing qualification is an optional module, so if you have plans to do this already, embarking on this course will achieve your ambitions and so much more.
Applications for 2017/18 are open until the end of August – don’t miss out!
