Experiential Learning for Student Pharmacists in Scotland


Experiential Learning for Student Pharmacists in Scotland

The Scottish Government is investing in the next generation of pharmacists, with new funding (from 2018/19) to support the experiential learning (EL) that Student Pharmacists from Robert Gordon University and the University of Strathclyde undertake as part of their degree. 

This funding will enhance the quality of experiential learning in hospital, community and primary care settings, and help better prepare the future Pharmacy workforce. 

'Scottish Pharmacy Experiential Learning' is organised in partnership between Robert Gordon University, the University of Strathclyde, NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and other pharmacy stakeholders.
