ABOUT THE PHARMACY DEGREE

Pharmacy is the science concerned with therapeutic substances – their discovery, origin and nature, their development into medicines and their use in disease prevention and treatment. Pharmacy also denotes the profession which uses its unique knowledge of medicines in the service of society.

A career in pharmacy can be versatile and highly rewarding. Pharmacy graduates can choose to work mainly with people, by using their unique knowledge and skills in patient care. Pharmacists supply medicines, provide medicines, health information and advice, and help to manage long-term illness. Pharmacy graduates can also choose to focus mainly on products – pharmacists hold key responsibilities in the Malaysian pharmaceutical industry and are in constant demand. Skilled graduates are needed in clinical research, in formulation research and development, production, quality assurance, regulatory affairs and marketing.

SHARING OF EXPERIENCE

Get an insight into what studying pharmacy in IMU is like and experiences from our students and alumni visiting from partner universities.

Student Experience at IMU

Teoh-Kai-XiangAfter going through one semester at IMU, I feel my overall learning experience was satisfying. I was able to improve my communication skills during laboratory session with my group members and when doing assignments with them. I had some difficulty understanding some lessons but with guidance from my IMU mentor, I was able to overcome those challenges – Teoh Kai Xiang (BP1/15)

 

Wong-Jia-WingIMU BPharm provides various teaching methods which helps to reinforce my knowledge, communication and problem solving skills. I had hands-on experience interacting with simulated patients during Pharmacy Skills Development sessions which greatly enhanced my learning. – Wong Jia Wing (BP1/14)

 

Ngai-Yuen-JingIMU is constantly making an utmost effort in bringing out the best in us to become a well-rounded person with good attitude. There are many community service activities and inter-professional learning which serve to enhance our soft skills. I love the lecturers here as they are knowledgeable and very helpful. They do not spoon-feed us but inspire us to learn more. – Ngai Yuen Jing (BP1/13)

 

Shim-Je-HoAs an international student, sudden changes in the environment and language were overwhelming initially. I believe the friendly lecturers have been a remarkable support for me. Once of the greatest things about the BPharm course is the innovative teaching methods that focuses not only on gaining knowledge but development of humane and professional attitude. – Shim Je Ho (BP1/13)

 

Yip-Cha-MingIMU provides an excellent learning enviroment to shape our personality and prepare us towards our professional career. Throughout the programme, I am exposed to various real-life and simulated scenarios related to my future profession. IMU also makes every effort to encourage our participation in extra-curricular activities, colouring my university life. – Yip Cha Ming (BP1/13)

 

Sreeveetha-SreedharanI like the hands-on approach of the BPharm course at IMU because it has taken my learning beyond theory. I have also learnt to apply my knowledge through experiences like giving presentations, working in teams and active involvement in small group learning. I feel prepared to get into the workforce because of it. – Sreeveetha Sreedharan (BP1/12)

 

What students said about research experience

Peggy-ChanPeggy Chan: Research had an incredibly positive impact on my university experience, both shifting my view on education as well as revolutionising the way I approach learning. Furthermore, my research experience has refined my interest as well as assisted in sculpting my plans for the future.

 

Lim-Chiu-SienLim Chiu Sien: I was given the opportunity to work with experts in the field, to gain hands-one experience working with the state-of-art instrumentation, to actually make contributions to science in a field that was interesting to me. It was incredibly valuable. The support given to students enabled me to add crucial real world experience to my education. This has helped me immensely in search for work after graduation.

 

Yap-Siu-ChingYap Siu Ching: The opportunity to work in the lab has enabled me to build my confidence in many areas. The research semester taught me to be confident and persistent; showing me that science doesn’t always work for the first time, but to keep striving for positive progress. It was truly an invaluable experience in helping me to make a more-educated decision on what field to pursue in the future.

 

Jennie-LeeJennie Lee: Semester 7 at IMU was my most memorable. I was involved in a project in an area of particular interest to me. It was exciting to be given an opportunity to learn different laboratory techniques and method of data analysis that I will be able to carry into my working life. Although at times challenging, I was encouraged and supported by my supervisors who invested a lot of time and energy into us, making it a rewarding experience.

 

Ng-Wen-HongNg Wen Hong: It is really interesting to explore to new area and learn to cooperate with friends. Despite of some difficulties when carrying out the experiments, it is worthwhile when you get the right result ultimately. In a nutshell: Good exposure!

 

Lee-E-LynLee E Lyn: The research experience during semester 7 provided a platform for me to learn new knowledge and strengthen problem solving skills. Working closely with my supervisors and other group members, it was also an opportunity for me to learn how to work effectively in a team. This has provided a foundation for me to pursue and conduct research even after graduation.

Students Comments on Hospital Placement

Elaine-KanElaine Kan, CLinical Pharmacist
BPharm has provided me with invaluable learning experiences which have prepared me well to work as a clinical pharmacist.

Meera-MohanMeera Mohan, Pharmacy Production Manager
The BPharm programme at IMU gave me advantages over other fresh graduates entering the job market, not only because of the positive reputation IMU graduates have, but also because we were trained to communicate effectively in a professional setting from day 1 with the incorporation of PBLs and PSD classes into our curriculum. BPharm students are also exposed to retail, clinical and industrial setting during the period of study there, which really helped me to decide which sector of pharmacy I wanted to branch into when I graduated.

 

Tan-Jia-JunTan Jia Jun, Community Pharmacist
I spent 4 challenging years at IMU but I managed it because of the friendly and helpful lecturers. They taught me not to only focus but also helped me in self-development. A crucial skill for a professsional througout their career. The experience was great and I am grateful to be in IMU.

 

Ng-Eng-HongNg Eng Hong, Health Clinic Pharmacist
IMU is a good stepping stone to all possibiliites in the field of pharmacy; industrial, community and hospital area. The university prepared me well to cope with my current work in which i need to dispense, counsel, manage stock procurement and clinic administration.
