Medway School of Pharmacy is a unique partnership between the University of Kent and University of Greenwich. The School has achieved full accreditation by the General Pharmaceutical Council (the professional and academic regulator) and is recognised as an established School of Pharmacy. The School's mission is to produce, through innovative teaching and research delivered in a supportive and caring environment, high-quality professional graduates committed to lifelong learning.
The new MPharm curriculum is an outcomes-focused curriculum designed to prepare students for their future professional practice. Teaching is integrated covering basic and applied science, clinical and professional practice, all in the context of patient care. Core themes of biological sciences, chemistry and drug delivery, and professional practice are taught within integrated modules based around body systems including: brain and psychiatry; heart and circulatory system; and the endocrine system. Using the body systems we break down barriers between the themes supporting you to learn more effectively. This will be supported by an increasing focus on practice-related learning, as evidenced by placements and in-house simulation-based learning, as well as additional practice experience provided in-house.
Graduates are required to undertake a pre-registration year in practice and take and pass a pre-registration exam before they can register as pharmacists in Great Britain.
Students studying this programme will be subject to the code of conduct for pharmacy students, and associated fitness to practice procedures as required by the professional regulatory body.
