Principal Lecturer in Assessment Skills, Simulation and Interprofessional Practice


The School of Pharmacy at the University of Wolverhampton has a profile of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the pharmaceutical sciences, pharmacy and prescribing studies; including its accredited MPharm Pharmacy and Independent Prescribing courses. Concurrently the University is developing a Centre of Excellence in Simulation to which the School anticipates playing a full role in supporting, and in developing, effective interprofessional collaboration.


This principal lectureship has been configured to support our continuing direction of travel towards developing future pharmacist prescribers within healthcare teams. This is particularly pertinent with the regulator’s recent requirement for schools to incorporate the necessary underpinning learning into undergraduate curricula such as clinical assessment, clinical reasoning and enhanced simulation skills.


The successful candidate, a health professional registered with a relevant UK statutory body and an experienced educator; will drive the development of innovative learning, teaching and assessment strategies that incorporate clinical assessment skills and simulation, inter-professional education, and flexible learning initiatives into our professional pharmacy programmes. To achieve this the postholder will be required to work effectively across Schools and Faculties.
