Who are we?

Right Medicine was formed in 2000 with our first Pharmacy in Stirling University. Since then we have grown in size to 32 pharmacies across Scotland covering most health board areas. We have managed to grow due to the teams we have working with us. We continue to grow and want to ensure that we have pharmacists of the future to join this growth. We have invested significant time and funding into supporting students and pharmacists of the future via our summer placements, uni placements and also via our early years pharmacist programme which has allowed an extremely supported first year as a pharmacist post registration and beyond.

What can we offer you?

We can offer a 4 or 8 week paid summer placement programme. You would be working in one of our pharmacies supported by both the pharmacy team, and also the company training and development manager. The programme has been revamped in 2020 with great feedback from all of this year's students. You will be given a project to complete throughout your placement, but will also have plenty of opportunities to experience the day-to-day tasks and challenges of community pharmacy.


Don't take our word for it?

Here is what one student had to say about her experience with RMP.

"I have always had a really good time on the summer placements at right medicine, everyone I have worked with, and those based in head office, have been so supportive and helpful. The placements have been a great experience for me to develop the skills I have learnt at university in a really supportive and friendly environment. The teams were open to any questions I had (even the slightly annoying ones) and always looked out for new things to show me which I may not have had the chance to learn or see in practice before."
