MSc Pharmaceutical Medicine programme


Programme Objectives

This programme is designed to meet the needs of those working (or intending to work) in the specialty of pharmaceutical medicine, or those who require a professional qualification pertinent to pharmaceutical medicine.

It is suitable for those practising within the pharmaceutical industry, the related fields of commerce or licensing authorities, or the public health service.

The programme is designed to:

  • Enable students to secure further recognition in the field of pharmaceutical medicine
  • Give a greater understanding of pharmaceutical medicine in the domain of healthcare
  • Provide evidence of specialisation, which is increasingly required under EU legislation
  • Demonstrate proficiency across the whole field of pharmaceutical medicine through a system of continuous assessment

The programme enables you to gain a wider perspective of pharmaceutical medicine, including the discovery, development, evaluation, registration, monitoring and marketing of medicines.

It will improve your ability to evaluate various aspects of drug development processes, and you will acquire postgraduate training suitable for senior scientific or clinical posts within pharmaceutical medicine.

The part-time and modular nature of the programme is well suited to busy people with additional work commitments, allowing a flexible rate of attendance (one to four modules per year).
