Over the last 20 years the role pharmacists perform has evolved from a mainly supply function to one which is more patient centred and clinically focused. Consequently, the education they receive has had to change to reflect their current and future practice. However, the exposure to patients in clinical practice is very limited due to limited funding and placement opportunities. Despite this, the pharmacy regulator insists that students do get some clinical exposure whilst at university. This study reports on how UK MPharm students at Wolverhampton University gain this clinical exposure.
