Pharmacy Summer Vacation Placements

Some South West hospitals offer vacation experience, in their Pharmacy departments, to current MPharm students. The experience can provide an insight into hospital pharmacy and can help to achieve specific objectives to support your decision where to spend your Pre-Registration year.

For more information on how to get a placement, please see the Tomorrow’s Pharmacist article.
