Clinical Pharmacy (Community) PG Dip

This part-time, distance learning programme:

Aligns with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Foundation Pharmacy Framework (FPF)

Meets the needs of community pharmacy

Equips foundation level pharmacists with the clinical, personal and managerial skills needed to progress within the modern NHS.

There is an emphasis on self-directed learning and reflection, enabling students to identify and meet their own learning needs. The programme has recently undergone major revisions and now includes optional pathways to meet a range of service needs, and the opportunity to register as an independent prescriber.

Clinical topics include:

Cardiology

Endocrinology

Respiratory

Pain

Dermatology

Neurology and Psychiatry.

Optional modules support the development of a specialist clinical area, leadership, management and quality and service improvement skills. The final year includes a quality and service improvement project. There are opportunities for inter-professional learning and cross-sector working, with well-utilised small amounts of contact time to support learning networks.

The core modules are delivered through distance learning with two additional mandatory study days at the University of Bradford. There are potentially extra study days for optional modules.
