The Clinical Pharmacy programme promotes excellence in the clinical, leadership and research skills of pharmacists. Student's clinical knowledge is enhanced and skills in the optimisation of therapy and problem solving are developed. A variety of optional course units further develop clinical knowledge and explore topics such as health economics, developing other professionals, organisational influences on healthcare and research. This is a distance learning programme which is accessible online. In most cases, students have complete flexibility about when to undertake their learning; however there are some activities which require being online at specific times.

- advanced knowledge and understanding of the management of a range of chronic conditions;
- skills in medicines optimisation and be able to communicate with a range of healthcare professionals to promote the appropriate use of medicines
- skills in the critical evaluation of a range of health services literature.
