Course Summary

This degree responds to an identified need for more NHS pharmacists to engage in research linked to their professional and practice role in areas where a PhD research programme may not be the most appropriate qualification.

The DPharm fits with all areas of the practice of pharmacy including hospital clinical pharmacy, technical services and community pharmacy practice. The programme aims to develop, strengthen and enhance pharmacy research and help to build the credibility of pharmacy as a research focussed profession.

This course is suitable for pharmacists who already have some research experience and wish to enhance their research skills and experience.

he course duration is a minimum of three years full-time or four years of part-time study.

One-third of the course is taught and two-thirds is research-based. The taught classes are:

  • Clinical skills
  • Research skills including health service skills & protocol design
  • Literature review

For full-time students the taught classes will take place in the first year of the course. For part-time students, this will take 18 months. You'll need to successfully complete the taught classes in order to proceed to the research element.
