Fferylliaeth Glinigol (MSc)

Yn gymhwyster allweddol ar gyfer datblygu gyrfa glinigol mewn fferyllfa ysbyty, mae’r rhaglen yn cael ei ariannu gan y GIG ac fe'i cefnogir gan Gyfarwyddwyr Cyrsiau Cyswllt ledled Cymru a thiwtoriaid profiadol sy'n seiliedig ar waith ar safleoedd ysbyty achrededig.

The MSc Clinical Pharmacy is a part-time distance learning course for pharmacists, run at 22 hospital sites in Wales and England. It integrates a traditional academic course with the student’s everyday role, with the aim of developing vital skills and knowledge to apply to their work.

The course offers an exceptionally wide variety of experiential learning, with a new area every three months for the first two years of the course. This allows you to gain a broad experience of pharmacy, under the guidance of a local practitioner, trained by the University to be your tutor.

The course has been developed by practitioners, and operating at 22 hospitals in four centres – three in Wales, one in England – provides the opportunity to compare practices in these regions and learn from each other.

The course offers knowledge and expertise required by a clinical pharmacist to input optimally into patient care.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

You will be taught through a variety of methods:

  • Completion of a self needs analysis
  • Attendance of weekend schools
  • Attendance at study days
  • Practice based work
  • Time with accredited tutor
  • Coursework: Portfolio & Assignments
  • Self-directed study.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

The associate course director for your centre will be assigned as your personal tutor. They have three main roles: academic, pastoral and as an advocate. They will visit you on site to provide feedback on your performance, help in your academic studies and observe you in practice.

At your base, the hospital site tutor will co-ordinate the course and be a point of contact. The associate course director and hospital site tutor are in contact (two-way feedback) throughout the academic year.

In addition, you may contact the course director at any time if necessary.

Specific examples of support provided throughout the programme are as follows:

  • Initial induction programme for orientation and introducing the programme.
  • Student handbook (also copy sent to hospital site tutor each year).
  • Student email and access to Blackboard/Learning Central.
  • Extensive library and other learning resources including IT suites; all journals are available as e-journals and can be accessed off-site.  Special arrangements with the library have been made for distance learner students.
  • Excellent teaching facilities.
  • Close collaboration between the course and pharmacy practitioners (course director and associate course directors are practising pharmacists).


You will receive written feedback on written assessments, and oral feedback on assessed presentations and your contributions to seminars. The opportunity to understand and use feedback constructively will also be provided through regular meetings with personal tutors at key moments every year.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

You will be assessed through the practice-based appraisals, CPD entries, patient profiles, basic enquiries, patient management problems, case presentations, teaching portfolios, critical appraisal exercise, written papers (class tests), audit written report and poster presentation, research project, other assignments and the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE).

All assessments must be attempted.  Modules must be passed at 50% or above. If you are unsuccessful on your initial submission of work, normally one further attempt would be granted by the Examining Board.

Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

  • Comprehensively understand and develop a critical awareness of your role as a pharmacist, and that of the pharmacy profession, in a changing healthcare system.
