Student–led conference delivers career inspiration for pharmacy students
On the 18th of February 2017, students and professionals from across the country were welcomed to UEA for the second Alternative Pharmacy Careers (APC) conference. Since the first conference back in January 2016, the student led conference committee came together to source 9 inspiring speakers from a variety of alternative pharmacy backgrounds, who shared their knowledge and enthusiasm with 150 delegates. Alongside the keynote speakers, Steve Howard and Simon Gaisford, the day saw 6 breakout sessions, addressing an assortment of areas such as medical writing and veterinary pharmacy. Delegates were given the opportunity to grab a bite to eat and network with company stands, including the British Army and AstraZeneca. Emma Fielding, a second year pharmacy student at UEA and Chair of the committee was delighted with how well the day went saying “ the team has been committed from day one to deliver the conference to such a high standard and I think that is proven by the success of the day.”
