The Master of Pharmacy Practice is designed to extend the pharmacists’ knowledge and skills and aims to develop an informed appreciation of current and future roles in various areas of pharmacy practice including hospitals, community pharmacies, pharmaceutical industries, academia, regulatory bodies, and research organisations with better career opportunities.
The Master of Pharmacy Practice (MPP) degree programme offered by IMU is unique and the first of its kind offered by a Malaysian private institution to local as well as international students. There will be three areas of specialisation offered namely Clinical Pharmacy, Social & Administrative Pharmacy, and Pharmacy Management. The areas of specialisation can be chosen based on the graduate students’ preference and according to their career needs in the future.
The development of this Master of Pharmacy Practice degree programme also takes into consideration the needs of the practising pharmacist at the moment:
a) the need to obtain a post graduate qualification
b) the need to upgrade and specialise in the new areas of pharmacy
The Programme caters to pharmacists wanting to undertake postgraduate education relevant to their needs, whilst remaining in employment. To meet these requirements the Programme is designed for maximal flexibility, allowing choice of modules and their timing, and strategically blending online and on-site learning. Cooperative learning is facilitated using online tools and online moderators, taking into account the needs of adult learners.
Note: Modules not listed as ‘Core’ under particular specialisation could be offered as ‘Optional’ based on each speciality, in order to complete the required minimum 20 credits from coursework.
The teaching format will generally include lectures (face-to-face and e-learning), supplemented by field visits, on site discussions, seminars, case studies and self-directed learning.
The curriculum is reviewed periodically and is subject to change.
Students are given the opportunity to take part in research projects in areas pertaining to pharmacy practice i.e., clinical, social and management. The students could undertake either:
Mainly continuous throughout the programme via projects, critical reviews, practical reports, reflective reports, proposal presentations, project presentations field reports during the first two semesters. A research dissertation is assessed in Semester 3.
