The Pre-registration Interview
Preparation for the application process
Nadia Bukhari - Masters of Pharmacy Programme Manager & Pre registration co-ordinator, University of London
This book will take students through the whole application and interview procedure for their pre-registration year.
Pre-registration is the first time that pharmacy students are formally interviewed for their first job after graduation. The pre-registration year is an extremely important year, as without completing the year students are unable to register as a pharmacist.
The book offers guidance on how to choose where to apply, the application procedure, filling out forms and preparation for the interview. Uniquely the book will include a large bank of real interview questions that the author has collated from feedback from many students who have completed their pre-registration interview. These include questions that have been asked of students from the hospital, community and industry setting.
This book will also cater for students who apply for their summer placement during the entire four year degree course as these placements will help them to get a better pre-registration place.
