The School of Pharmacy has recently expanded the clinical placement programme such that students will now undertake clinical placements in each year of the course.
Level 1 – Half-day introduction
Level 2 – Two day placement
Level 3 – One week placement
Level 4 – One week placement
These clinical placements are intended to demonstrate the relevancy of the undergraduate course material and facilitate effective application of clinical knowledge post-registration. The clinical placements will be facilitated by a team of clinical teacher practitioners based throughout the hospital Trusts in Northern Ireland. The allocation of students to hospitals will be based on geographical location of students and students will be allocated to a convenient hospital location wherever possible. The School of Pharmacy is unable to reimburse travel costs and therefore students are encouraged to share travel costs through, for example, car sharing wherever possible.
