Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences

Jonathan Davies has been employed as a Senior Lecturer in Clinical Pharmacy within the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences since 2015. As a Senior Lecturer he is actively involved in the teaching and learning of the undergraduate Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) programme, as well as the postgraduate Clinical Pharmacy programmes offered by the School. Jonathan is a GPhC-registered pharmacist with Independent Prescribing annotation, and has experience of providing pharmacy services in a hospital setting.

Jonathan’s current administrative roles include being the Programme Leader for the GPhC-accredited CPD in Independent Prescribing for Pharmacists. Jonathan teaches actively across all four levels of the MPharm programme, and has a particular interest in the use of simulation and simulated practice in undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacy education.

Jonathan is a member of the Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics research group, and his current research interests include the implementation and evaluation of programmes of simulation in undergraduate pharmacy education, incorporating both in-person and immersive virtual simulation.
