During this six-week field placement (4-week hospital / 2-week community) the student will gain practical work experience in a hospital setting and in a community placement. Each hospital pharmacy practice setting will provide a unique work experience where students will apply the things they learned in the classroom in accordance with the hospital pharmacy policies of the institution. In addition students will refine their experience with the community by building on their previous community placement experiences. Students will employ effective written and verbal communication strategies in various work situations with different types of audiences. By the end of the six-week period the student is expected to fully function in all the aspects of customer service and be ready to enter as entry-level-to-practice as a Registered Pharmacy Technician.
