International PhD Scholarship in the School of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences, UK

Applications are invited for a full-time scholarship available in the School of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences. The scholarship is tenable for up to 3 years for a PhD (via MPhil route) [subject to satisfactory progress] and is open to international applicants only. UK/EU applicants are not eligible to apply. The scholarship will provide £15000 towards the cost of the International tuition fee over 3 years.
In this project, the student will explore current practice among pharmacists – in both community and hospital settings – in relation to young people’s health. They will use the DH England ‘You’re Welcome’ framework (2007) to map the practice development needs of six participating community and hospital pharmacy sites. Important issues will include resources – principally staff, premises and training. We hope that all six pharmacies will ultimately be accredited under the terms of this framework, and that the student will describe the process and challenges of working towards this accreditation. Cross-national work would be welcomed.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 13 May 2011
