Course content

These courses are intended to help community pharmacists
to develop their clinical, managerial and research skills, meet
duties imposed by the HSE contract, undertake the role of a
supervising pharmacist or superintendent pharmacist with
confidence, extend their professional role and contribute to
patient care as part of the primary health care team. Because
of their distance learning format, participants can continue in
full-time employment throughout the courses.
Participants initially enter at M.Sc. level, and in Year 2 they may
choose either to graduate with a Postgraduate Diploma in
Community Pharmacy or to undertake a research component
with a view to gaining a M.Sc. in Community Pharmacy.
