well, i really enjoy the clinical side of pharmacy so i was just wondering if i ever wanted to do medicine after this would it be possible as they are completely different. I really enjoy my course as i find drugs effects on the human body and vice versa very interesting but i also enjoy the diagnosis which we do (which you would do more of in medicine)


would it be possible?

I'm friends with three of them, one got a 1st from De Montfort. The other two got 2.1's from Bradford and Liverpool John Moores.

Hope that helps

What year are you in now? If you want to apply for medicine, then go for it! but i would advise you to do it after your pre-reg because i think it gives you the advantage of having worked full time in the healthcare. But its up to you.

If you do the pre-reg you can talk about it in your PS and stuff.

It surely is a long route into the GEM but sure why not?

would you have to do the full time of the medicine degree after pharmacy or would it be shortened if that makes sense

Please make a new thread, instead of reviving one that's 6 years old.

I noted you already did.
