Our former student Isabel Marín has been selected from more than 2000 students in the United Kingdom to specialize in Hospital Pharmacy at Addenbrooke´s Hospital, Cambridge.
“On July 29th I start the year specializing in Hospital Pharmacy at Addenbrooke´s Hospital, Cambridge. In the United Kingdom Pharmacy is a university career consisting of four years at university and one year specializing, for example, in Hospital Pharmacy, Community Pharmacy or Industrial Pharmacy. In order to gain entrance to these professional specialization programmes, each year more than 2000 Pharmacy students in the United Kingdom undergo a process of national selection consisting of examinations and interviews. Based on the results of these exams, we can be accepted in one of the specialities. Of all the available places only the tenth part correspond to programmes specializing in Hospital Pharmacy, making it one of the most difficult to enter. My first choice was Cambridge University Hospital, as it is one of the most prestigious at international level for teaching and investigation. When I was offered a place, because I came 364th in the national ranking, I was so happy. I am really looking forward to starting this new stage, where I will be able to grow both professionally and personally”.
These are Isabel´s words. We are very pleased to hear about this great piece of news and we hope it will be an experience which continues to enrich your personal and profesional career. We are sure this will happen.
Good luck and come to visit us soon!
