Initial Education & Training of Pharmacists

The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) has collaborated with experts and other stakeholders to develop a curriculum Topic Guide that embeds Planetary Health into UK postgraduate family medicine training.. 

Check out the Education for Sustainable Healthcare: A Curriculum for the UK endorsed by the Medical School Council UK. 

We are in process of co-writing a Pharmacy sustainability curriculum to be endorsed by the Pharmacy School Council UK.

Pharmacy undergraduate students can register on the CPPE website and access external resources on their learning gateway pages. Pharmacy students in Northern Ireland can also access this content. At present, the main content of the CPPE website is only open to GPhC registrants, which excludes pharmacists who are registered only with PSNI.
