RGU aims to attract postgraduate pharmacy students

A pharmacy lecturer from Robert Gordon University (RGU) in Aberdeen will attend The Pharmacy Show this autumn to attract new postgraduate students from across the country.

Dr Anita WeidmannThe event, which will be held in NEC Birmingham on Sunday, September 25 and Monday, September 26, attracts hundreds of delegates each year who attend presentations and workshops and network in exhibitor areas.

Senior lecturer Dr Anita Weidmann from RGU’s School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences will be at the Education Hub.

RGU’s postgraduate degree in Clinical Pharmacy Practice and the Pharmacist Independent Prescribing course are both taught via distance learning, making them accessible to people across the country. 

The MSc Clinical Pharmacy Practice has been designed to provide students with a broad education in Clinical Pharmacy along with opportunities to focus their studies more specifically to their area of practice.

It also provides the opportunity for pharmacists to develop professional practice as clinical practitioners involved in making decisions about patient care.

The Pharmacist Independent Prescribing course will prepare pharmacists to achieve the learning outcomes required by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) in order to apply to be annotated as pharmacist independent prescribers.

The course includes a compulsory residential week to facilitate the acquisition and development of new skills that cannot easily be taught at a distance.

Dr Weidmann said: “RGU’s Pharmacy courses are highly regarded across the country and we have substantially increased the number of postgraduate students we attract for further study.

“Our postgraduate MSc in Clinical Pharmacy Practice and the Pharmacist Independent Prescribing course are respected by employers from all Pharmacy sectors and help our graduates develop their own careers to work at an advanced practitioner level.

“I’m looking forward to meeting those who are interested in studying at RGU and will be more than happy to answer any questions about the university and our pharmacy courses.”
