PDip - General Pharmacy Practice. PCert - General Pharmacy Practice
Medway School of Pharmacy is one of the few regional schools of pharmacy in the UK, a collaboration between the University of Kent and the University of Greenwich. The impetus for the formation of the Medway School of Pharmacy came from the local community, who recognised the shortage of qualified pharmacists in all branches of the pharmacy profession in Kent.
The overall aim of this programme is to provide general-level hospital and community pharmacists – registered with the GPhC and working – with the core skills required to provide holistic pharmaceutical care in the practice setting. The programme aligns with a nationally agreed pharmacy practitioner development strategy and is the result of a unique collaboration of higher education institutions across London and the south and east of England.
The programme develops your underpinning knowledge and skills in clinical pharmacy practice and medicines management. It works on a philosophy of student-centred workplace learning, supported by workbooks and contact days facilitated by experienced pharmacy practitioners. You are expected to take responsibility for managing your learning and achieving the programme objectives. The ethos and culture of the programme is to enhance and develop self-reliance and an adult approach to learning in support of Continuing Professional Development.
The programme is further supported by studentlearning sets, downloadable interactive computerassisted learning and a range of resources, including the library facilities at Medway and your practice base, and the internet.
