Aiming High 2019

We know how important the pre-registration year is, which is why, every year, we aim to help our members to get theirs off to a flying start. ‘Aiming High’ is our popular annual pre-registration conference in conjunction with the BPSA. It is full of information designed to help you on your journey to becoming a pharmacist. The day will feature sessions from the BPSA, ProPharmace and Pharmacist Support, and aims to help get members pre-reg ready!
