Our pharmacy teaching is based in the Stopford Building, where £18 million has been invested in new teaching and research facilities by the University.
This provides our undergraduate students with state-of-the-art modern facilities. Specialised aseptic laboratories and communication studios have been built, along with a new dispensing suite and project laboratories.
We also have a newly-refurbished 90-terminal PC cluster with a full complement of pharmacy-specific and office-based software packages available to undergraduates when not used for scheduled, supervised computer-assisted learning (CAL) classes.
Through the Pharmacy Computer Assisted Learning (PCAL) Consortium, students can access all PCAL and Pharma-CAL-ogy software packages through any networked machine on the campus.
Our Year 2, 3 and 4 MPharm students also get the opportunity to use offsite facilities when they spend time in pharmacy departments and on wards in one of three local NHS trusts.
We provide students with state-of-the-art modern facilities, including specialised aseptic laboratories and communication studios.
We are one of the UK's leading centres for pharmacy research. We are based in the Stopford Building on Oxford Road at the heart of the campus.
Our pharmacy programme is flexible enough to meet career aspirations in community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, industry or research.
Many teaching and learning activities are used on the course, including lectures, tutorials, practical classes, computer and enquiry-based learning sessions, group work, and research projects.
The four-year MPharm course provides a broad-based, scientifically and clinically-strong education in pharmacy.
SimMan 3G is a patient simulator and students can record his pulse, blood pressure and ECG. Students can also inject a range of medicines into SimMan and his vital signs will respond in a realistic manner.
Students experience the dispensing process at a hospital pharmacy using dispensing robot technology. This technology reduces human error in the dispensing process and upholds patient safety.
Students can experience the role of a pharmacist within local hospitals in Manchester. Here, a student is using a dispensing robot to automatically dispense medication.
