Learning Pharmacology: 'cause the drugs don't stick...
Show Notes

Pharmacology and prescribing is an important subject and skill for all medical students, and many healthcare professionals! Yet, it can be somewhat overwhelming when first approaching the topic and tackling those long lists of drugs and side effects.

In this episode we are joined by Rhea Soni, a current Year 3 medical student who originally trained as a pharmacist. Her prior experience being a pharmacist gives her a unique insight into learning pharmacology and prescribing. She shares tips that will help you during the pre-clinical phase but also on what you can do during clinical placements to keep honing and expanding those skills!
