The main focus of the Foundation Programme (FP) is on in-practice training and experiential learning in the workplace. This provides FP pharmacists with the opportunity to gain knowledge, skills and experience in three core patient-facing areas (dispensary services, medicines optimisation (MO) and evidence based practice (EBP)), plus one additional optional area relevant to their area of practice (technical services – hospital, or public health - community / primary care). See below for some learning resources and other information to support each practice area.
