About Pharmacy at University of Lincoln

The MPharm course at Lincoln combines the science of medicines and disease with the development of patient-facing decision-making skills and practice required by modern pharmacists to care for patients.

The School of Pharmacy is involved in innovative projects to develop new models of pharmaceutical care. There are opportunities to learn from, and work alongside, our team of academics who aim to ensure that students are prepared both to help shape and develop pharmacy practice.

The course introduces the science underpinning how drugs are developed and produced and how they interact with the body to treat and prevent disease. It includes an understanding of how we evaluate medicines for safety and effectiveness.

The patient-facing skills include developing the clinical decision-making and communication skills required to translate and apply the science to optimise treatment for individual patients within the different sectors of pharmacy practice.

This degree enables you to develop the relevant knowledge and skills to succeed in this exciting profession. The Lincoln MPharm qualification enables graduates, once they have completed an additional pre-registration year and passed a final national registration assessment, to apply for registration as a pharmacist with the General Pharmaceutical Council.
