UCL School of Pharmacy –  Clinically Enhanced Pharmacist Independent Prescribing course

Applications for April 2020 cohort open Monday 16th December

UCL School of Pharmacy introduced the Clinically Enhanced Pharmacist Independent Prescribing course in October 2018. The course is designed to support pharmacists to extend their roles. Successful completion of the course will enable the pharmacist to apply for annotation of their name on the GPhC register as a prescriber.

The course incorporates five full days of physical examination skills teaching, led by medics and supported by pharmacists who use physical examination skills in their daily practice so that students can learn from their experience of extending their pharmacy role.

The Clinical Skills Suite and equipment are used ensure students gain hands-on experience of diagnostic skills needed for diagnosis which they can develop further with their designated medical practitioner during the supervised time in practice.
