This unit of study will provide students with the opportunity to experience the practice of pharmacy in one of a range of industrial settings. Students will contribute to the activities of the host organisation, e.g. helping to develop and prepare consumer-relevant information sheets on managing medicines. The overall workload (full-time for 13 weeks) will be agreed individually in consultation with the host and will be commensurate with 24 credit points.
Students will be allocated a full-time workload in the host organization. Forensic: 8hrs of lectures and 3hrs of workshops.
Students will be assessed through the submission of two reports, detailing their activities and the activities they have contributed to. The initial report will provide a background about the industrial host (including information about the company and department(s) in which you have been based), their area of pharmaceutical activity, and an introduction to the activities to be performed on the placement. The final report will give a detailed description of the work performed, its relevance and how the work translates to health practitioners, patients, policy makers, the host organisation or other stakeholders. The industrial host will also be asked to provide a brief assessment of the student's performance on their placement and will be assessed as Pass/Fail. Satisfactory performance is required in the forensic examination.
Those recommended by the host institution. Pharmacy and Poisons legislation is required but is made available in a specific format for the unit.
