Welcome to the Medway School of Pharmacy Postgraduate programmes.
The Medway School of Pharmacy’s postgraduate taught programmes are specifically designed for a range of healthcare professionals in active clinical practice. You can train as a non-medical prescriber, develop your career as a newly qualified clinical pharmacist, gain a qualification in Medicines Optimisation or take a series of short courses for CPD and career development. You will be taught and guided by a group of dedicated academic and clinically active healthcare professionals who are experts in their fields.
PhD students can apply for either three-year or four-year research programmes. Go to the main Research Pages for more information and details on how to apply.
