The four year honours B.Pharm degree in Pharmacy was established in UCC in October 2003. The programme is offered by the School of Pharmacy within the Faculty of Medicine and Health in collaboration with the School of Medicine and departments in the Faculty of Science.
Students take a module in anatomy and pathophysiology in the first year of the programme. The objective of the module is to ensure that students achieve an understanding of the structural biology of the major body systems relevant to Pharmacy and of the anatomical and histological features of common diseases amenable to drug therapy.
The module is accompanied by a dedicated teaching manual and an online practical course to ensure optimal quality and relevance of content.
