Welcome to the Pharmacists webpage. Here you will find links and downloads to a variety of careers information and resources including E-Modules, webinar and weblinks to assist you in effective career planning and decision making.
It is becoming increasingly common for pharmacists to ask for some careers support. There are many reasons why individuals contact us. Typical questions they have include:
- how can I gain greater balance between my workplace and home life?
- what can I do to boost my self-confidence in the workplace?
- how can I get clarity about making my career decisions?
- what are my career options given the recent changes in personal circumstances?
- what is the best way to advance my career?
- how can I make my application stand out?
To assist Pharmacists with their career planning, London and South East (LaSE) Careers Unit has developed a career planning module specifically for Pre-Registration/ Foundation Pharmacists in partnership with e-learning for Healthcare.
The course is designed around the four stage SCAN career planning model (Self Awareness/ Career Exploration/ Arriving at a Decision/Next Steps) to support you in making career decisions about Pharmacy options throughout your career.
You can enrol for the course on the e-lfh learning Hub here:
