The MPharm course at Wolverhampton aims to produce pharmacy graduates who are highly equipped to meet the needs of the profession, future employers and, most importantly, patients.
The friendly and supportive environment in which you will study focuses on developing the right knowledge, skills and attributes to equip you on your learning journey. As you progress, you will become an independent learner who is adaptable, self-aware and inherently capable of developing the profession and going on to enjoy a successful and rewarding career in your chosen area of pharmacy.
The programme itself is highly clinical and patient-focused, benefiting from our extensive use of lecturers and practitioners who have experience working in the various sectors of the profession.
Benefit from our recent £3 million investment in professional teaching spaces.
The School of Pharmacy, based in the University’s Wulfruna Building, has been revamped to offer larger, multipurpose teaching spaces for use by students. Improvements to facilities include an extension of the existing practice suite offering a flexible working space for students.
In 2022 we opened new exciting new facilities for Pharmacy students, including a new flexible professional learning space has been created incorporating a dispensary, counselling rooms and simulation space for the development of clinical and consultation skills. There are also two new meeting rooms and a new reception area as well as a new multi-purpose flexible teaching space which will be able to accommodate up to 120 students.
These new facilities will enable our students to collaborate and learn using the latest industry-standard technology and resources.
At Wolverhampton, the traditional disciplines of science and practice which underpin pharmacy are taught as an integrated whole using a thematic approach. This is achieved by organising your study around, patient, medicine and professionally orientated themes which transcend the traditional pharmacy subject areas. Content is then revisited each year at increasing levels of complexity as you become more equipped to apply and integrate the knowledge and skills which you develop on your journey.
We particularly emphasise:
- the clinical pharmacotherapeutic management of minor and major diseases based on the underpinning actions, effects and properties of drugs
- the development and use of medicines from drug entities
- the development of interpersonal, writing and research skills needed to optimise medicine use and development
- the development of professionalism
A major feature of the new Wolverhampton MPharm programme involves the introduction of innovative, contemporary learning approaches, including Team-based Learning and Case-based Learning. These are designed to maximise your engagement and satisfaction with the course and to support you in realising your full potential.
Our learning methods will help you to apply acquired knowledge and skills to realistic pharmacy scenarios, enhance your critical thinking skills and enable you to work effectively in team environments. You will experience class time as “quality time” that is much more focused on interaction and feedback. What’s more, the important knowledge you will need at each stage will be committed to long-term memory making you better equipped to deal with exams and other assessments both here and when you leave us to enter the pre-registration stage of your training.
