Pharmacy at University of Birmingham is an innovative and cutting edge programme, designed to equip students with the knowledge, skills and expertise demanded by the expanding role of the pharmacist. Students are taught the practical skills needed for professional practice in our bespoke, purpose-built Pharmacy accommodation, which includes formulation laboratories along with dispensing and patient counselling suites. With a firm foundation in the science of medicines to support their clinical decision-making, students engage with other healthcare students, staff and professionals to develop their learning, with placements in community, hospital and primary care practice starting in year 1 and continuing throughout the programme.
We are currently working with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) to gain accreditation for our programme. As with all new Schools of Pharmacy and in line with the accreditation process, we will be visited by the GPhC annually until we reach Step 7, when our first cohort of students graduate.
