Developing professionalism as a student

Developing professionalism as a student

The standards for pharmacy professionals are relevant to all pharmacy students while they are on their journey towards registration and practice. The standards explain the knowledge, attitudes and behaviours that will be expected of students and trainees if they apply to join the register.

Students should use them as a tool to prepare for registration and read them alongside other relevant documents that are provided by their education and training provider

Student fitness to practise

Anyone applying to register as a pharmacist must demonstrate their fitness to practise. The GPhC has issued guidance to all schools of pharmacy offering accredited MPharm degrees, foundation degrees and OSPAP courses to provide them with advice on how to develop and apply consistent fitness to practise procedures for students.
