Clinical Educator in Ethics and Pharmacy Law
Zahra qualified as a pharmacist in 2018 and successfully completed her Clinical Diploma in Clinical Pharmacy with Independent Prescribing in 2020.
After qualifying as a pharmacist, Zahra went on to work in community pharmacy in Central London, Leicester and Derby before joining the Learning and Development team in Boots head office. She spent her time there designing content for all pharmacy team members across the business. She successfully adapted the Pre-registration programme for trainee pharmacists to be delivered virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That year, the company saw the highest pass rate for pre-registration pharmacists in community pharmacy.
Zahra then moved to work in a PCN in Nottingham, where she implemented the skills and knowledge that she gained through the Clinical Diploma and was practising as a clinical pharmacist, undertaking in-depth medication reviews, deprescribing and dealing with complex medication queries from care homes.
She moved to Buttercups Training to work as a Pharmacy Tutor for the Level 3 Pharmacy Technician Integrated Apprenticeship and looked after 55 trainees, supporting their training and development through their programme.
She now works at De Montfort University as a Senior Lecturer in Pharmacy Practice and supports with the delivery of the Independent Prescribing Programme.
