What kind of jobs can I do?
The majority of pharmacy graduates become pharmacists with patient contact but there are also options within academia, regulatory bodies and the pharmaceutical industry.
Pharmacists are experts in medicines, how they're formulated, used and their effect on the human body.
On completion of an accredited MPharm you must complete a foundation training year which covers key competencies in areas such as medicines and health, personal effectiveness and interpersonal skills. You are required to pass a registration exam to become registered to practice as a pharmacist in the UK.
