HKUMed UG Prospectus 2022

Placement, Clerkship and Research Project The programme ensures that students are adequately prepared to provide expert service at the community level through placement openings provided by the largest community pharmacy chain stores in Hong Kong. As part of the curriculum, each pharmacy student will have the chance to gain work experience in different pharmacy settings during term time. Students will rotate among hospital pharmacy, community pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry for at least one week in each setting during the final year of study. In addition, students will have the opportunity to carry out a research project in a specialised area of their choices, including pharmaceutics, pharmacology, pharmacy practice and clinical pharmacy, under the supervision of our academic staff. The research experience will be critical for the future career of pharmacy students in both the academic and pharmacy workplace. Opportunities for Interprofessional Learning The programme offers students with invaluable opportunities for interprofessional learning throughout the four-year curriculum, including a health research project (HRP), patient care project (PCP) and interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPECP) with students from the Medicine, Nursing and Chinese Medicine programmes. These interprofessional learning activities will utilise the expertise of students from different backgrounds and foster cooperation between different healthcare professionals in the future. 8
