Call for expressions of interest to facilitate placements for M.Pharm students

APPEL (Affiliation for Pharmacy Practice Experiential Learning) has announced it is now seeking expressions of interest from pharmacists in community and hospital pharmacy settings who would like to facilitate an experiential learning placement for a final-year pharmacy student in 2022. 

In the fifth year of their M.Pharm programme, students solidify their learning by completing an eight-month placement in a patient-facing setting before becoming eligible to sit the Professional Registration Examination (PRE) and enter the PSI register. 

The advantages of facilitating an APPEL placement include: 

  • Continuing Professional Development: APPEL Trainer Training can contribute to pharmacists’ CPD, as can the experience of facilitating a placement. 
  • Development of your talent pipeline: Many students will look to start their career in the organisations or practice settings where they undertook their placements. 
  • Engagement: Participating in the APPEL programme provides you with the opportunity to increase awareness of your pharmacy/organisation. APPEL training and events provide fantastic networking opportunities. 

The next fifth-year placements will run from the 3 January to the 26 of August 2022. The deadline to confirm your interest in offering placements is 29 March 2021. You can do this by clicking on the link below: https://forms.gle/GT7AsjjA6ZbKRrwx8.
