The PDA Pre-Registration Conference

Following on from the success of our previous conferences, we have once again collaborated with reputable pharmacy training provider, ProPharmace and Alan Nathan, independent trainer and author of ‘FastTrack: Managing Symptoms in the Pharmacy’ to produce this valuable conference for our pre-reg members.

This year, our two-day Birmingham event is taking place alongside the PDA National Conference. This exciting opportunity means that you will be able to visit the stalls of exhibiting organisations during the registration period and take the time to network with other members and some of the leaders of our profession. Additionally, the PDA are hosting a fundraising dinner in support of the professions charity, Pharmacist Support on the evening of Saturday 30th March which you are welcome to attend (separate booking and charges do apply, further details will be sent to all registrants).

Sessions will cover a range of clinical topics, calculations and handy hints and tips to help you to prepare. View the full programme here.
