Swansea University’s Faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Science seeks an Associate Professor specializing in Clinical Pharmacy and/or Pharmacy Practice. This role involves spearheading MPharm curriculum development and delivery to ensure graduates are fully equipped for evolving clinical roles within the pharmacy sector.

The curriculum emphasizes inter-professional education, public and patient involvement, enhanced placement learning, and clinical skills. Applicants are encouraged to contribute to integrated teaching across various subject themes, including pharmacology and therapeutics, pharmaceutics, or pharmaceutical chemistry. Collaboration with the Practice of Pharmacy Teaching Group and active engagement with community stakeholders, placement partners, and patient and public volunteers are integral aspects of this role.

The goal is to produce pharmacists who are leaders in their field, capable of clinical patient management, contributing to pharmaceutical innovation, and enhancing community health. This aligns with the vision of “Pharmacy: Delivering a Healthier Wales.” Join a supportive community of pharmacy academics and healthcare professionals in Swansea, a vibrant city renowned for its natural beauty and welcoming atmosphere.
