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 School is now recognised as an established school with accreditation from the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) as well as the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Graduates are employed in health disciplines in Kent and the south east and more broadly across the UK.
The Medway School of Pharmacy houses strong and vibrant research groups that span a range of pharmacy-related areas. Staff have a wealth of research experience, and UK and international links with both industry and academic institutions.
The programme gives postgraduate students the integrated, broad-based research training needed to exploit current advances in pharmaceutical and biological sciences and pharmacy practice.
