Master of Pharmacy (MPharm)

University of Kent, Medway School of Pharmacy
Campus Full time 4 years August 2017 United Kingdom Medway

The MPharm programme is a four year programme which aims to provide pharmacy education of excellent quality and focuses on producing future pharmacists who will promote the safe and effective use of medicines, ensuring patient and public safety at all times. [+]

Top PhD Degrees in Europe 2017. Overview The MPharm programme is a four year programme which aims to provide pharmacy education of excellent quality and focuses on producing future pharmacists who will promote the safe and effective use of medicines, ensuring patient and public safety at all times. The MPharm curriculum is outcomes focused and designed to be transformational for the student. It is based on a three-pronged thematic model integrated around selected body systems which form the basis of a core curriculum. Using the body systems model as an integrated context for teaching, the curriculum is designed to break down barriers between disciplines, helping students to learn more effectively. Teaching is integrated, facilitating students’ exposure to basic and applied science and professional practice in the context of patient care. This will be supported by an increasing focus on practice-related learning, as evidenced by placements and in-house simulation-based learning, as well as additional practice experience provided in-house. Teaching Each course includes lectures, seminars, laboratory work, small group work, practice based activities and assignments. There are also a number of placements throughout the programme, so you will benefit from both academic and practice-related environments. The MPharm programme culminates in a sustained research project which constitutes one third of the final year of the programme. Placements Practice placements are an integral part of the MPharm programme. Placements are undertaken in both community and hospital pharmacy settings. Students are required to complete a one-day practice experience in the community in Year 1. This is followed by a week in both settings in Year 2 and two weeks in both settings in Year 3. Assessment Assessment includes written examinations at the end of each year. All courses also have continuous assessment that contributes the remainder of the overall course mark. Continuous assessments include practical dispensing examinations, objective structured clinical examinations, presentations (individual and group), written reports, assessment of laboratory notebooks, case studies, essays and multiple choice questions. Final honours classification is calculated from: 20% of Stage 2 overall grade, 30% of Stage 3 overall grade and 50% of stage 4 overall grade. Becoming a Pharmacist: After a UK based course: After the successful completion of the course you will receive an MPharm degree. There are a number of further steps to go through before you will be able to register with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and practise as a qualified pharmacist in the UK. Once you have completed an MPharm you will need to apply for a pre-registration year, this is where you will further develop the skills you gained during your degree as a paid employee in a professional environment. Entrance on a pre-registration year is competitive and there is no guarantee that you will receive a place. A proportion of these pre-registration places are with the NHS, but the majority of placements involve working with community pharmacists. Again, you should be aware that your place on the pre-registration year is not guaranteed as the number of available placements is dependent on different factors. One such factor is that the availability of pre-registration places offered by community pharmacies can vary from year to year. International students are also very likely to require a visa which can be dependent on meeting a number of conditions, including a minimum salary requirement. After the completion of 52 weeks of pre-registration training, and subject to you passing the registration exam at the end of the training, you will be eligible to register with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and practise as a fully qualified pharmacist. Features Innovative new teaching facilities including clinical skills laboratory, an extensive network of teacher practitioners (seconded at least two days per week), leading edge research academics, and a programme which is based on a three-pronged thematic model integrated around selected body systems. Entry Criteria Offer Levels The MPharm degree is a four year full-time programme of study. Graduates are required to undertake and pass a registration examination before being permitted to register as a pharmacist in Great Britain.
