Applications open for fully funded post-registration community pharmacist training – Post graduate certificate!!!

Did you know that community pharmacists can enrol on new, innovative and engaging training at masters-level through the Pharmacy Integration Fund (PhIF).Pharmacists can choose to take a single or range of modules, with different credit values, dependent on their development needs or interests, with a maximum 60 credits per learner per year (60 credits is equivalent to a post graduate certificate).

You can choose a virtually delivered or online module from a provider determined by content rather than geography. Provision runs from February 2018 to March 2019 and is for the equivalent of up to 2,000 postgraduate certificates.

Pharmacists interested in taking up the fully-funded training will need to contact the course provider directly.  For further information on applying, modules on offer, study requirements and deadline dates see the provider sites on the HEE website.

The training will be delivered by De Montfort University, the University of Manchester, and the University of Bath (in some cases with consortium partners) and it will cover five strands:

  • service improvement;
  • extended skills;
  • patient activation;
  • delivering medicines optimisation; and
