Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will be familiar with the different approaches to expanding the role of pharmacists in patient care and to evaluating their healthcare activity by means of different quality control indicators. They will know how to identify the misuse of pharmacotherapy in patients and be able to respond with a view to mitigating possible secondary effects. Graduates will be capable of conducting studies on the incidence, prevention, and costs associated with the negative results of certain medicines and medical products. They will know how to develop protocols for pharmaceutical interventions targeting the most frequent illnesses. Finally, graduates will be able to promote and participate in educational campaigns and research projects in collaboration with healthcare organisms and agencies, oriented towards the rational use of medicines and the improvement of the quality of life of patients.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
