Trainee comments

 “It was great to be part of the East of England training programme run by the UEA.  It was like being back at university life with lots of interactive lectures and excellent case studies.  It provided a good bridge from university to full-time work as a pharmacist”

“We were given lots of support by the UEA pre-reg programme team.  I really enjoyed meeting pre-reg trainees from many other hospitals and learning how different trusts manage different situations.   I also enjoyed the interactive teaching sessions by experts with lots of case studies.  The programme was well organised and we covered lots of relevant topics within a short time.”

“The UEA training programme was amazing! Awesome preparation and help for the GPhC exam and great opportunities for socialising and networking with other trainees and specialist pharmacists. The Programme Delivery team were very supportive and gave us opportunities to meet lots of new people.”

“The UEA study programme was pitched at the right level and focussed on applying our knowledge in scenarios and workshops. I appreciated all the clinical sessions delivered by specialist expert pharmacists.  We had the chance to ask questions and learn more than just the basics for each topic.  They were very interactive, dynamic sessions that made it easier to learn and process the information provided.”
