Throughout the year, students take some courses taught by pharmacists and other health professionals (mainly doctors) and undertake placements under the supervision of an approved placement supervisor and in collaboration with hospital pharmacists and other professionals, such as specialist doctors in different fields, nurses etc.
The teaching methods are varied and include lectures as well as problem-based learning. The majority of the teachers are university staff with practical experience. There is special emphasis on creating a link between theory and practice.
The wide variety of placements which students undertake provide many different learning situations. By the end of the academic year, students will have had the opportunity to learn about all the aspects of a career as a hospital pharmacist.
