Pharmacy: Do You Have What It Takes To Be An Expert In Medicines? With Dr Paul Mcdermott & Dr Rosemary Norton From University of East Anglia

May 25 @ 15:35 - 16:35



Do you have what it takes to be an expert in medicines?

Join us to explore the world of clinical decision making and find out about the new developments within pharmacy degrees and why it is an exciting time to be a pharmacist.

This session will offer an understanding of what pharmacy is and the role of pharmacists, along with the changes in pharmacy degrees.

The main focus of the session will be on a clinical scenario/case study to explore NHS core values which engages students in a live decision making process.
