About

The Clinical Pharmacy programme of University College Cork Online is a two-year, part-time distance learning course specially designed for pharmacists employed in a healthcare setting, who want to enhance their clinical pharmacy knowledge and practice skills. Much of the learning is case-based so scientific and professional elements are integrated.

Overview

The Clinical Pharmacy programme of University College Cork Online is designed to maximise contact between student and tutor while allowing distance learning via the internet and through teleconferences/webinars with experienced medical and pharmacy practitioners.

Course Practicalities

Delivered entirely by distance learning. Apart from the final year exams, students are not required to attend the university. A compulsory induction webinar at the start of year 1 introduces students to the structure of the programme. The taught modules incorporate a combination of printed module workbooks, teleconferences, web-based seminars and online assessments. Students communicate with the module co-ordinators and each other through regular teleconferences/ webinars and via the Internet (using Blackboard, UCC’s learning management system).

Course materials are circulated under a strict timetable and all module assignments must be returned within set deadlines. Average 10 to 15 hours a week on teleconference/webinar preparation and participation, general reading, case studies, assignments and examination study and half a day each week on clinical placement/ work-based learning.
