The fourth year

Well that’s the summer over and done with.

It’s been quite a tough summer for me. Not just with the amount of pharmacy-related work I had undertaken but with personal matters as well. It’s not really been that much of a holiday.

There are certain topics/matters that I am concerned about, including the five-year MPharm course that integrates the preregistration year and the future of community pharmacy within the NHS. But I have had very limited time to look at these matters specifically. So in the nearby future I’ll be looking at the topics in greater detail.

Preregistration. On this issue, I have been applying everywhere. Up until now, I think I have had both positive and negative feedback. There’s a lot of pressure to pick your ideal preregistration placement (community, industry, hospital) and go wholeheartedly for it. This is because there are many wholehearted students going for exactly the same placement as you. It’s sad to think that education is based on competition but that’s economics I suppose.  

To the future – the fourth year begins on Monday. The university has decided to make the timetable ‘online’ this year. So that’s going to be great for somebody like me, who is unorganised at the best of times.

All my blogs are current thought patterns and ideas that I think are interesting or funny. Hopefully I’ll blog about some conferences this year. So, on this cheery note, let the fourth year begin!
