The curriculum supports a broad approach to practice - pharmacists are expected to manage issues related to safe and effective provision of medicines regardless of context, including providing information to patients and health care professionals, ensuring the technical and legal aspects of medicines supply are met, providing evidence led clinical advice and more complex problem-solving skills relevant to their future careers.
CareersGraduates from the General Pharmacy Practice programme at the University College London (UCL) typically progress to senior Pharmacist roles within the healthcare sector.
The curriculum will develop pharmacists who are able to practice at a general level, and consequently embraces clinical, technical, medicines information and patient service elements.
The curriculum fundamentally contributes to the Foundation practitioner development strategy and serves as the foundation for future pharmacist development and supports practitioners to develop knowledge, skills and behaviours during Foundation Stage 2 that will underpin advanced practice development later.
The ethos and culture of the programme is to enhance and develop self-reliance and an adult approach to learning in support of continuing professional development.
