Pre-registration / Provisionally registered Pharmacist of the Year
Making the transition from classroom to frontline practice is a big step for pre-registration graduates, while being thrust into life as a practising pharmacist without a training year has got to be a daunting prospect. But the best students and provisionally registered pharmacists make it look effortless, as they turn the theoretical knowledge gained at university into the practical application of patient care. The winner of this award won’t be your average pre- or prov-reg; they will have set themselves apart from their peer group with their drive, ingenuity, ideas and commitment to make a difference to their community.
Tell us what you have done and why, how you did it, and what you have learned from the experiences that will help you in your future career.
Anyone who was on a pre-registration training placement or was on the provisional register working in a community pharmacy during 2020. This can include both those who began their placement in 2019 and completed it in 2020, and those who began their placement in 2020 and are due to complete it in 2021. Either way, the majority of the work referred to in your entry must have taken place during 2020 and in the community component of your work.
