    I noticed that there hadn't been a thread open this year for Pharmalife applicants so thought I would create one to see how applications are going.

    Let's help each other with whatever we know and hopefully we'll be that bit more prepared come interview time!

    Just started my application and haven't decided where I'm going to apply yet.

    Awesome

    I've started filling out all of the mundane info like education etc., but haven't actually started writing any of the answers to the profile questions

    Thinking of applying to:

    The London Collaboration (top choice)
    UCL Partners
    Kent, Surrey, Sussex
    Undecided :/

    Did you get any experience? I have none so I hope that doesn't hold me back!
    I wanted to apply for The London Collaboration but I figured it will be the most difficult to get. Your choices seem good though
    I heard east midlands is easiest so I might apply there. So hard to pick just 4!

    Yup, got 4 weeks at a large teaching hospital in London. Unfortunately it means almost **** all as I can't apply to that hospital directly as it's in The London Collaboration

    Does anyone know what they want us to write about in the 'what you've gained in your experience' section? What key things make applications stand out?

    As obvious as this sounds they just want to see that you actually learnt something on any placement that you've done

    Does anyone really know how to go about applying for KSS and TLC I feel like my answer to question 5 is quite generic, it's so hard to make it specific

    No idea - at least you're in a much better place than I am - all I've done so far is written answers for the first 3 questions, I haven't touched the hobbies and the long final question, or that other one that is supposed to summarise what you've gained collectively from all of our work experience... starting to feel as if I've left this too late now

    It's the final question that I'm finding a killer. I haven't done the summarise what you've gained collectively from all of your work experience I don't even know where that question is :s You still have just a bit over two weeks just need to power through and you can definitely get it done

    Yeah, the summarising work experience question is at the end of the CV section of the application. I guess so - but working full time on weekdays is killing me so I have no drive/motivation to work on the profile questions when I get home, and because it's summer, I always seem to have plans with friends or family on weekends :/

    And I'm the not type that can sit down and bang it all out in one go - I have to spend like an hour or so a day over several weeks (including a LOT of procrastination time) to actually produce something decent

    Hi,

    Been starting my pharmalife application.

    Please help or share info/advice.

    What kind of examples would be ok for the professional judgement questions?

    For the hobbies one, should we say how this has helped or whats its taught us? Or literally list what I like to do?

    Any tips on making the personal statement unique so it stands out? Are you doing one per hospital?

    Any answers are much appreciated and I hope you all get what you want.

    Anywhere you've done an intervention
    Hobbies - Literally list as many as you can.Really understand the department and how they work, so you can tailor it to each individual trust
