Course content

The MSc Clinical Pharmacy Service Development course is a two year course with a focus on developing the knowledge and skills required for the development, implementation and evaluation of clinical pharmacy services.

By combining both academic, theoretical learning with a professional practice placement, the course will allow you to develop the skills appropriate for a clinical pharmacy practitioner.
Distinctive features of the course include:
  • A professional practice placement - applying knowledge and skills to a real life environment
  • A student-led approach to learning - integrated and case-based, embedded at all stages
  • This facilitates the acquisition of problem-solving, critical thinking and decision making skills.
Simulated scenarios in RGU’s Clinical Skills Centre and access to the Volunteer Patient Programme prepares you for the professional practice placement.
This enables you to integrate knowledge and skills learned in class, with core skills such as patient care and communication skills, providing a transition between the academic and practice environments.
