A key element of the MPharm programme here at Queen's are our experiential learning (EL) placements which students will undertake within both primary and secondary care pharmacy. We've recently significantly increased the time which our students will spend on placement during their degree, allowing them to put their learning into practice, and gain useful insights about professional practice in these sectors whilst learning from highly-trained professional pharmacists to an even greater extent, offering a range of benefits.

In this edition of the podcast, Fiona Hughes (Senior Lecturer (Education)), Patricia Holden (Senior Lecturer (Education)), and Prof. Roisin O'Hare (Clinical Education Pharmacist Lead for Northern Ireland) will help you to find out more about why EL placements are so important, and if you're a student, let you know what you can expect your placments to be like, as well as how you can prepare fully to make the most out of them!
