Pharmacy Education conference 2021

Our annual Pharmacy Education Conference brings together scientists, pharmacists and educators involved in pharmacy teaching.

Pharmacy Education Virtual Conference 2021: The Digital Switch

The seventh Pharmacy Education Conference will take place on Wednesday 15 September 2021, with additional workshop events taking place on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 September 2021.

This year, the conference will be a virtual event, delivered via a series of webinars, online workshops and an online conference web portal.

This conference seeks to bring together scientists, pharmacists and educators involved in undergraduate and postgraduate pharmacy teaching. It is an opportunity to meet colleagues, share good practice and learn about developments in pharmacy education.


Once again we will be inviting colleagues to submit abstracts for the conference, to one of two streams:

  • Teaching initiatives/innovation
  • Completed evaluation of teaching and pharmacy education research

Full details of how to prepare an abstract for submission to this year's conference in the links can be found below.
