The Pharm D programme is a new course being offered for the first time by the University of Malta in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Chicago. This course was developed to provide for the rapidly growing niche area in pharmacy related to a professional doctorate in clinical pharmacy. It is a means to develop professionals with a research-oriented approach and with skills in advanced clinical pharmacy practice.

Pharmacists who would like to take up the area of Clinical Pharmacy as their specialisation will now be given the opportunity to take this up within a professional context whilst developing skills and attributes of undertaking research in the field and reading for a level 8 Doctorate level degree.

The programme will empower pharmacists practising in the professional areas to take up leadership roles that will drive policies, developments in practice and service provision which draw on a scientific and evidence base. 
The course programme is based on a hybrid model of teaching including on-line teaching, campus and practice-based teaching and a research component. The taught elements integrate learning experience with the assessment and the contextualization in the professional life of the student.

The programme is based over three years of study covering a total of 9 semesters.  Candidates who complete successfully year 1 but do not complete successfully 3 semesters and do not wish to continue with the programme are awarded a 'Masters in Advanced Clinical Pharmacy'. 

This course will prepare graduates who are able to deliver a significant contribution to pharmacy practice and policies in clinical pharmacy and applied areas. These graduates will have the potential to lead the direction of new developments in the pharmaceutical profession and provide a significant impact in their respective field.
