Work Experience in the East of England

The majority of hospitals in East of England offer structured work experience opportunities for MPharm students during the Summer months.
The 1-3 week placements are supported by a Handbook developed by expert practitioners.

The Handbook provides:

•    a set of objectives for each rotation
•    a tool for recording competencies achieved
•    an evaluation form of overall experience

All students who submit a completed evaluation form receive a 'Certificate of Achievement' issued by the UEA Programme Delivery Team
