Trainee comments

“The UEA Study Programme is a well organised, well led and thorough programme that is conducted by friendly and approachable people. The taught sessions included areas of practice that we, as hospital employees, don't see on a regular basis – which has been incredibly useful in terms of both preparing for the GPhC assessment and future practice as pharmacists"
"I have had an amazing experience this year with the UEA study programme. The programme delivery team supported my training in very useful ways such as, providing teaching by expert practitioners, group work on case studies and clinical application exercises and practise questions for the GPhC assessment.  All members of the team were professional, approachable, and always striving to improve my learning experiences Thank you for this year - it's been a blast!"
"It was a very good programme with an amazing team who provided all resources needed to pass the exam, and what is required to create well-rounded healthcare professionals. I highly recommend this programme!"
"The UEA study programme is a well-rounded training programme as it is interactive and facilitates group discussions. Despite the shift to online learning, due to Covid-19, the study sessions remained interactive and relevant to practice."
