Face to Face workshops
The Guild ITP workshops are an integral part of the Guild training experience, allowing interns an opportunity to meet with peers and learn in an interactive group environment. The Guild ITP comprises of two, two-day workshops which are spaced strategically throughout the year, so that they may assist you in preparing for your written and oral exams. The Guild ITP workshops fulfil the mandatory Australian Pharmacy Council requirement for interns to attend a minimum of 25 hours of face-to-face workshops throughout the year.
For convenience, workshops are run in all states and territories, and in larger states multiple workshop options are available to allow for smaller class sizes and increased interactivity.
Quality Use of Medicines (QUM) will be the main focus of the first workshop which will include clinical refreshers on various disease states including case studies and interactive learning opportunities. Relevant pharmacy industry updates will also be provided as well as ‘mock-exam’ sessions (e.g. calculations, legal/ethical and clinical) to assist you in preparing for your APC written exam.
A not to be missed workshop! Again focusing on working in groups and undertaking case studies, but with a specific and dedicated focus on getting you prepared for the all-important PBA oral examinations. Interns will have the opportunity to take part in exercises to mimic the four key components of the PBA oral exam as well as benefit from the experienced advice of our knowledgeable Guild clinical tutors in how to prepare for the big day.
I greatly benefited from both workshops, especially from the group discussion aspects of workshop 2. Specifically, I found the ethics discussions extremely valuable
