MPharm graduate from University of East Anglia
After I have graduated, I am having a year as a pre-registration pharmacist in Boots before I am fully qualified. In this year, I am training to be a pharmacist and I have a much organised schedule for training. I am entitled to have an hour private study time everyday, I will be studying the BNF, doing the workbook and preparing for the study day.In the first month, I was mostly working over-the-counter, helping customers to treat their minor ailments, providing advice to help them to choose the most appropriate and safe products and promoting healthy lifestyle, such as smoking cessation. And then I was mainly working in the dispensary. My job involve stock reviewing, labelling and dispensing prescriptions, clinical checking prescriptions, ensuring the prescription is legally completed and medications are at the right dosage. Also, I am counselling patients of any adverse side-effects or potential interactions of their medications and instructing patients on the use of medicines and medical appliances.
Actually this is a really challenging job for me as I need to manage well on both working and studying. And it was quite difficult for me at the beginning for several reasons since I was working in a totally new environment far away from my university and due to different cultures and language barrier. But I was very luckily that all colleagues and friends have given me many support and encouragement. Now I am able to cope well under pressure and embrace changes, my confidence as well as my professionalism and accountability have been enhanced.
