MSc Pharmacy - Clinical Pharmacy is a two-year, part-time distance learning course at University College Cork 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.


The Pharmacy - Clinical Pharmacy course at University College Cork 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.

Learning outcomes

This course is assessed using a mixture of continuous assessment (assignments, exercises, multiple choice question exams and clinical case presentations) and written exams.

Written examinations take place in UCC at the end of both years. For some modules, there is a clinical case presentation along with the exam at the end of the academic year. Students in year 2 of the course will complete their research project.

If you are interested in becoming a leader in clinical pharmacy services, our course will provide you with the skills you need. These include presentation skills, report writing, critical appraisal of drug therapies and rational drug use, pharmacoeconomic evaluation, research project management and medication safety management.
