University of Tartu is opening a master’s programme in Clinical Pharmacy

The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Tartu has opened a new web-based English-taught master's curriculum in Clinical Pharmacy, which aims to train pharmacists in the field of patient medication use.

Jana Lass, programme director of the master's curriculum and Associate Professor of Clinical Pharmacy, explained that clinical pharmacists may work in either a hospital or community pharmacy, and their duties include optimising treatment regimens and counselling doctors, nurses and patients. 

The Clinical Pharmacy master’s curriculum is unique in Northern Europe. The programme is fully online and addresses all pharmacists working in different areas. The curriculum contains crucial topics covered by the teachers, who are all practising clinical pharmacists, pharmacologists or medical doctors. The programme is taught using a case-based approach and extensive practical training.

The teaching takes place online in the Moodle environment, where all available options are used (e.g. e-lectures, webinars via BigBlueButton, forums, tests).

The scope of the curriculum is 90 ECTS, and the total duration of the studies is two years. Admission is open from 2 January to 15 March 2024.
