  • Course description
    Medway School of Pharmacy, the first regional school of pharmacy in the UK, was established jointly by the Universities of Greenwich and Kent in response to demand from the local pharmacy community. This unique collaboration has provided an opportunity to design an innovative patient-focused programme that addresses the needs of modern pharmacy practice.

    There are currently over 40,000 pharmacists registered in Great Britain but there is an on-going shortage of pharmacists to fill recurring vacancies due to the expanding role of the pharmacist into areas such as supplementary and independent prescribing.

    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.

    Graduates are required to work for one year in practice, and undertake and pass a pre-registration examination before they can register as a pharmacist in Great Britain.

    The programme integrates three interlinked themes:

        * The Patient, Disease and Drug Action
        * Practitioner and Patient
        * Medicines Design and Manufacture

    A research methods course in year three leads to a sustained research project which constitutes 50% of the final year of the programme.
