Pharmacy placements and training

King's Health Partners summer internships 2017

Kings Health Partners (KHP) includes the following hospitals:

  • Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust

  • Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust – (Denmark Hill and Princess Royal, Bromley)

  • South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust

  • Plus, Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust

We offer unpaid work experience between June to August 2017 for placements of four-six weeks for around 40 placements across the KHP hospitals where the successful intern will spend their time in one of the hospitals throughout their internship

We are asking for applications to be submitted from 1 January 2017 at 00.01am to 31 January 23.59pm to aamer.safdar@nhs.net.

Any applications received before or after this time window will not be considered.

About the scheme

These voluntary placements are only open to UK pharmacy undergraduates (i.e. students currently studying for an MPharm, or equivalent, degree programme).

The main focus of the internship will involve project work which individual tutors will set for their students; these may be in clinical or non clinical areas.  Each summer intern will be assigned to a tutor who will be responsible for the programme for their student(s) which would include visits to other areas of pharmacy; there is no guarantee that visits to all areas will be provided.  Summer interns will gain an in-depth insight into advanced practice in their tutor’s specialist area(s).

The summer work experience is a separate process to pre-registration training and being unsuccessful for summer work experience has no influence over pre-registration training recruitment.
