The role of the modern pharmacist has evolved in recent years, making it a hugely varied and rewarding profession. Pharmacists advise on and deliver the latest in cutting-edge treatments and medicines to millions of patients every day. Whether on the frontline of the NHS as a community pharmacist, working on a hospital ward, in a GP practice, in research or within industry, pharmacists are an integral part of the healthcare team. Pharmacy offers a challenging and patient-focused career path. Our course produces effective practitioners with the knowledge and skills to deliver the very best pharmaceutical care for patients underpinned by sound scientific principles. This is achieved through a student-centred approach, developing you as a life-long learner and reflective practitioner. An emphasis is placed on inter-professional learning where you will learn with and from other professions such as medicine, dentistry, nursing and allied healthcare professions. You will develop an understanding of how the body works; the effects of disease; how drugs are made, delivered to and affect the body; and importantly, how to achieve shared decision making with patients that ensures the maximum benefit from medicines with the minimum incidence of side effects.
