MPharm student experiential learning placements

Tuesday, March 3, 2020


If you normally take undergraduate students for EL placements (or you would like to!) – things are changing this year!

NES have agreed to co-ordinate the placing of students with pharmacies, starting this year with all 4 years of RGU students and those in their final year at Strathclyde who are exploring novel areas of practice. Next year, NES will take over placing all undergraduate MPharm students in Scotland for their experiential learning blocks.

What does this mean for you in practice? There are a few dates for your diary and actions you will have to take so that things run smoothly:

What do I need to do? By when?
Submit Expression of Interest to take students along with pharmacy details and availability NES will open the process on the 9th of March 2020, with a deadline of the 20th of April
Look out for contact from Universities telling you which students are coming and when RGU – by 14th September UoS – by 5th October
Contact your students to inform them of the specific site you are hosting them at and any housekeeping/pre-work required 4 weeks before placement starts
Contact your student to confirm final placement timetable/details 2 weeks before placement starts

If you have any questions, please contact Adam in the policy office
