Monday, 11 February, 2019 7.30pm-8.30pm

Presenter: Khalid Khan, Training Programme Director for Pre-Reg (North West), Health Education England

Oriel is the national recruitment platform pharmacies can use to recruit pre-reg trainees to start in summer 2020, instead of recruiting independently. This webinar will explain how the Oriel system works, why pharmacy students might use Oriel to find their placement, and the pros/cons for pharmacy employers compared with direct recruitment. It will help you make an informed choice about whether to recruit through Oriel for 2020/21, making sure you have time to register yourself with Oriel before the deadline of 1st March 2019.
