Clinical Pharmacy

NICPLD, in collaboration with the Schools of Pharmacy at QUB and Ulster University, provides an MSc for pharmacists in Northern Ireland who wish to develop as Advanced Pharmacist Practitioners. The programme is a natural progression from the Post-Registration Foundation and Independent Prescribing Programmes and takes two years to complete.

The programme is based on the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Core Advanced Pharmacist Curriculum, which encompasses the four pillars of clinical practice, leadership and management, education, and research.

A call for applications to the MSc in Advanced Pharmacy Practice (APP) is made in Spring each year. Further information can be found in the Advanced Practice section of the NICPLD website.
