The Pharmacy Academic Practice Unit is part of the Aston Pharmacy School. The APU is a novel collaboration between the Pharmacy School at Aston University and Birmingham Children's Hospital and the wider NHS.

As part of these programmes the APU provides a leading role in the development and delivery of practice-related postgraduate courses and in particular the professional doctorate in pharmacy (PharmD), clinically enhance pharmacist independent prescribing (CEPIP), advanced health assessment (AHA) and Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) training.
