Course content

The professional doctorate in pharmacy (DPharm) is an exciting route for pharmacists working in any field to achieve a doctorate qualification by undertaking advanced study in pharmacy practice, and Stage 1 leads to the MSc in Advanced Pharmacy Practice.

The course is undertaken part-time whilst you continue to work in your chosen field of pharmacy practice. The DPharm course is offered in two Stages: Stage 1 consists of a taught programme, and Stage 2 involves a research project.

Along with the taught elements of Stage 1 you will be developing the depth and breadth of knowledge in your particular area of practice and in doing so, will add considerably to the value of the role you hold in your current employment.

Stage 1 successfully undertaken on its own will lead to the award of MSc in Advanced Pharmacy Practice. If you wish to study for the DPharm you will be required to successfully complete both Stages 1 and 2.
