Structured Training and Education for Pharmacists (STEP)

Hospital pharmacists are a vital part of the healthcare team where the safety of patients is at the forefront of a pharmacist’s role.  As a recently and newly qualified pharmacist where better to enhance your skills and knowledge than through a structured programme incorporated within your current role. The Structured Training and Education for Pharmacists (STEP) post-graduate foundation programme has been designed to enhance the role of post-graduate hospital pharmacists, providing them with a platform to expand their current knowledge, give them a wide variety of experiences and develop their skills to become an expert in medicines.

The STEP programme is an experiential foundation training programme for recently and newly qualified pharmacists working in the hospitals within Kings Health Partners. Our Trust is an affiliate, and the partners in this programme are Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Guys and St Thomas’s NHS Foundation Trust, and the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals. The programme is set over three years where you will have the opportunity to gain experiences within the partner hospitals. For further information on the programme see the STEP handbook or contact the STEP programme coordinator using the details below.
