The visitors are gaining direct experience and exposure to clinical pharmacy practice in a general hospital, spending time with and learning from our expert pharmacy team of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, gaining experience of enabling technology developed to optimise medicines, experiencing the National Health Service and how pharmacy integrates within the multidisciplinary healthcare team.

International students in their final year of the Masters in Advanced Clinical Pharmacy Practice at Queen’s University Belfast have the opportunity to participate in this residential programme.

This first cohort of three pharmacists are on site from Monday 21st January to Friday 1st February 2019.
