Pharmacy Observership Program

We offer different hospital pharmacy programs based on the type of students applying for it. All programs will have structured schedule aimed at providing extensive exposure to the clinical practice of pharmacists in UK hospitals. All candidates will have a pharmacy supervisor at their hospital setting who will oversee the attachment period and provide support where needed and another pharmacist at UKMDO who will be the liaison person between the department and the student and will ensure all the objectives set are met by both parties through out the program.
