Pharmacy MPharm - Amy Chow

Student profile: Amy Chow

Degree: Pharmacy MPharm
Fourth year
Subject area: Pharmacy

The programme is world-renowned – and with good reason. I enrolled here to become a pharmacist, but ended up working with world leaders from Canada, the UK and Australia involved in pharmacy practice policy and regulation development.

In my third year, I went back to Toronto and was put in touch with a local professor, to explore what Ontario can learn from the aforementioned jurisdictions. I interviewed influential members of regulatory, advocacy, education and corporate bodies as part of my research, and was given the opportunity to host a conference for the top 50 thought leaders in Ontario to decipher the province’s next steps. I have presented the findings to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Faculty Leads and I continue to be involved, when possible, as the pharmacy profession evolves.
