HELLO, my name is Sureena and I’m a pharmacist on a mission to helping pharmacy pre-registration students (and all those curious about medicines) through my YouTube channel: Sureena Speaks!
Why am I doing this? Well, because this time last year I was doing my pre-reg, and like many I know, I had this preconceived idea that it was going to be a relaxed year where I would be able to socialise after work and chill in the evenings – oh how wrong I was!
I had no idea how tough a year it would be filled, with long hours, challenging patients, too many dosette boxes to handle and lots of learning. But now having passed the exam and working as a community pharmacist, I am very grateful for all those experiences and the lessons I learned along the way.
One thing that was really apparent to me during my pre-reg year was just how lost we can feel during the pre-reg. I think we’ve been so spoiled at school and university having guidance at our doorstep and knowing which teachers/lecturers we could turn to for help that.
In comparison, my pre-reg year felt very daunting and knowing where to start with revision was half the battle. That is why Sureena Speaks was born — the aim is to support, motivate and guide students on their learning journey, to give more structure, advice and helpful revision tips.
So, why not come onboard and hopefully Sureena Speaks can help you – and if nothing else you can laugh at my various facial expressions! Like, share, subscribe, comment, follow me @SureenaSpeaks and join my Facebook page and let the learning commence!
