Smart Wellness & Sustainability

Pharmaceutical Studies

Recently, the rapid growth of economy and living standards in Asia drives up the sales volume of pharmaceutical products in the region. Hong Kong is geographically located centrally in both the Greater China and Greater Bay Area. With its free trade policy, Hong Kong attracted numerous multinational pharmaceutical companies to establish offices in the city. Besides, the city’s aging population, increased disease burden, and growing disposable income continue to provide excellent opportunities for the pharmaceutical sector to expand. Accordingly, to be a qualified staff in the pharmaceutical sector in the future, he/she should be knowledgeable about clinical pharmacy and drug dispensing, pharmaceutical science, medical laws and regulatory affairs, medical operations, pharmacovigilance, pharmaceutical logistics as well as the required skills and competencies.
