Applications open for post-registration community pharmacist training

Applications open for post-registration community pharmacist training

January 25, 2018

Health Education England (HEE) has announced that community pharmacists around the country can now enrol on new, innovative and engaging training at masters-level through the Pharmacy Integration Fund (PhIF).

Pharmacists can choose to take a single or range of modules, with different credit values, dependent on their development needs or interests, with a maximum 60 credits per learner per year (60 credits is equivalent to a post graduate certificate).

They can choose a virtually delivered or online module from a provider determined by content rather than geography. Provision runs from February 2018 to March 2019 and is for the equivalent of up to 2,000 postgraduate certificates.

The training will be delivered by De Montfort University, the University of Manchester, and the University of Bath (in some cases with consortium partners) and it will cover five strands:

  • service improvement;
  • extended skills;
  • patient activation;
  • delivering medicines optimisation; and
  • NHS England clinical priorities.

Pharmacists interested in taking up the fully-funded training will need to contact the course provider directly, but more information is available on the HEE website.
