Degree:Master; Honours
Field of Study:Pharmacy (PharmD [USA], PharmD or BS/BPharm [Canada])
Description:The MPharm degree is a pre-requisite to commence a pre-registration year, followed by an examination, leading to registration as a pharmacist with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC). The course aims to provide the student with the relevant knowledge combined with the personal and professional skills required by the profession. The MPharm has been designed to fully integrate, from day one, the science of medicines, with the clinical patient-facing skills and professional skills in the context of current and future pharmacy practice.

The science includes how drugs are discovered and produced, how they interact with the body to treat or prevent disease and how the body interacts with medicines. It includes an understanding of how we evaluate medicines for safety and effectiveness. The patient-facing skills include clinical decision-making and communication skills required to translate and apply the science to optimise treatment for individual patients within the different sectors of pharmacy practice. The School of Pharmacy has developed extensive links with hospital and community pharmacy and with the pharmaceutical industry in the region and on a national and international level. An external advisory group, which include patient representatives, have and continue to provide guidance on curriculum development and teaching for the MPharm.
