Program Description:

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. This programme, approved by the appropriate professional/regulatory bodies, provides a distance learning option for qualification as a non-medical prescriber. Eight (nine for nurses) contact days cover communication and diagnostic skills. Other topics on the syllabus include the legal, policy, professional and ethical aspects of prescribing, plus pharmacology and patient assessment and monitoring. You can take the Master’s programme as a stand-alone PCert in Independent/Supplementary Prescribing, or as one pathway into the Medicines Management programme (see left), by studying prescribing as either the first or second year of the Medicines Management PDip.
