West Midlands Pre-Reg Trainee Programme

West Midlands Pre-registration Trainee Pharmacist Programme

The regional study day programme is designed to complement the workplace training within each trust, through regular study days held at the NMC Venue, West Bromwich. These study days also provide the pre-registration trainee with the opportunity to network with other trainees across the West Midlands.

Resources such as study day materials, calculations questions and useful links are shared across the region using a virtual learning environment.

The region consistently achieves a pre-registration pass rate that exceeds the national average.
