I am Ming Huey, and I am proud to be alumna who graduated from the Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Pharmaceutical Chemistry in 2012. Soon after I completed my higher secondary study, I was in a dilemma while choosing my first-degree programme and the higher institution I will be studying this programme in. However, having a desire to build my career in pharmaceutical industry, I ended up in the Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Pharmaceutical Chemistry in IMU and this turned out to be the best decision that I have made for myself. I knew that I wanted to get a degree, which has a strong academic foundation and practical training skills to prepare myself. Three years later, I walked away with good friends, an expansive knowledge in the field of pharmaceutical chemistry and interpersonal skills.
The programme had constantly shaped my intellectual progression and nurtured my passion in chemistry. Besides the comprehensive curriculum, it is the team of lecturers who have made it superior to other programmes. Their motivation, support, keen assistance and constant guidance had helped me to achieve better academic progression. I was able to build a strong fundamental understanding of pharmaceutical sciences and industry processes, allowing me to apply in my job.
As an IMU graduate, I was fortunate to acquire multiple job offers and currently, I am working as a Medical Product Specialist with Servier Malaysia. I had been given ample opportunities to realise my potential with the skills that I have acquired from this programme.
As Medical Product Specialist, one needs more than just communication skills l to thrive in this industry. A strong foundation in pharmaceutical sciences is vital to build a strong product knowledge to promote market leading products to general practitioners, private hospital specialists and pharmacists.
Thanks to the skills and knowledge that I have acquired through this programme, I am able to convey scientific data to the healthcare personnel confidently, besides hosting numerous Continuous Medical Education (CME) locally in Malaysia.
In short, I can define my three years journey in IMU as full of inspiration, joy, learning, laughter, and meaningful interactions. Lastly, I would like to express my sincere gratitude towards all the faculty members, especially my mentor, Dr Cheong Kok Whye for his continuous support and guidance in preparing us fundamentally to advance our careers.
