Enhance your career with Cardiff University
At Cardiff University's School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, we have an international reputation for the quality of our teaching and research and we are among the leaders in clinical skills development. We strive to equip pharmacists with the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to thrive in their chosen careers so that they, in turn, can positively affect patients' lives.
We offer professional postgraduate programmes in Clinical Pharmacy and Clinically Enhanced Pharmacist Independent Prescribing. Both of these programmes have been developed in line with the significant changes in the landscape of the pharmacy profession which require a pharmacy workforce capable of deploying a range of clinical skills and services for improved patient benefit and optimised therapeutic outcomes. These highly valued programmes will prepare you as a pharmacist for more advanced prescribing and clinical management roles to benefit healthcare wherever you choose to practise.
Additional courses are also available in the School of Medicine at Cardiff University, that are open to applications from those working within the pharmacy profession. Many of these courses are available as flexible distance learning, allowing you to study around your current work and home commitments, and give you an insight into many different aspects of primary care. Our interdisciplinary courses give you the skills to improve patient outcomes, as well as underlining your commitment to continuing professional development. Many programmes are available as PgCert, PgDip and MSc awards, allowing you to work towards a qualification that fits within your current commitments.
