The MPharm course at Lincoln combines the science of medicines and disease with the development of the patient-facing decision-making skills and professional practice required by modern pharmacists.
Our School of Pharmacy is involved in innovative projects to develop new models of pharmaceutical care. Students can learn from, and work alongside, our team of academics who aim to develop the next generation of pharmacists to shape and develop future pharmacy practice.
The course introduces the science underpinning how drugs are developed and produced and how they interact with the body to treat and prevent disease. It includes an understanding of how we evaluate medicines for safety and effectiveness. The patient-facing skills include developing the clinical decision-making and communication skills required to translate and apply the science to optimise treatment for individual patients within the different sectors of pharmacy practice.
