Bachelor of Pharmacy (2014)

Where are you working/ studying presently?

I am the Branch Manager at Health Lane Family Pharmacy in Wangsa Maju. 

Describe your general work scope and experience.

Being a retail pharmacist is a whole different ball game. Unlike working in a hospital, retail pharmacy emphasizes more on supplement knowledge. My job is to make sure stocks are sufficient for daily sales, dispensing of medications, counselling of medications, answering customers' queries and staff training.  

Why did you decide to study at Monash University Malaysia?

Monash University is a reputable university. Studying in Monash Malaysia provides world class teaching at an affordable rate. The location of Monash University Malaysia is also strategically located in Bandar Sunway.

How has your degree at Monash prepared to be where you are today?

Monash provided me great lecturers who shared their working experience as well as their knowledge. Visiting lecturers were constantly exposed to students who were curious about the pharmacy profession. Monash also provided me internships at various pharmacy settings and it gave me foresight on my future profession.

Describe your student experience/ journey. 

It was a fun filled journey which could never be replicated. Being the former president of Monash University Pharmacy Society (MUPhaS) has not only taught me about friendship, it also taught me about leadership and teamwork. Both which are important in the pharmacy profession. Having our own virtual pharmacy was also an eye opener. It has shown how pharmacy has evolved over the decades of practice into the digital era.

What did you love most about your student life at Monash Malaysia?

I loved the teaching environment in Monash Malaysia. Lecturers were easy to approach and study materials were readily available online, for example the recorded lectures. I also loved the library where it gave us a place to study or relax in peace. The sports complex and the student lounges were also one of my favourite pastimes where we get to work out and also mingle with friends.

What was most challenging?

The syllabus of course! Being one of the best pharmacy schools in the world, it is without surprise that our pharmacy syllabus requires hard work!

What was most memorable? 

Joining the Nottingham University inter-pharmacy competition and MUPhaS emerging champions.

What would be the one word to sum it all up? 

Eye-opener.

What is your advice to current Monash Malaysia students?  

Take up part time jobs when you’re in university or when you’re doing your pre-registration. It would be of help in your career later!
