For students currently pursuing a Pharmacy degree, we offer a dedicated programme to gain practical work experience at our leading Mannings stores in order to supplement their academic year.
Our Pharmacy Student Programme is designed with one key commitment – to provide an optimal learning experience in community pharmacy for high caliber students from Hong Kong and overseas, and to ensure that we continue to live up to our reputation for quality service from quality team members.
Mannings offers a structured six month internship for local students in their final year. In addition, first and second year local and overseas students are welcome to apply for practical work experience through our placement programme. Students in both schemes gain real-life pharmacy counter exposure with the support and supervision of an assigned mentor. Through the programme, students will be provided insight into various roles in order to help them as they choose their career path after registration. Typically we offer two intakes each year – one in July and one in December. Since its inception, over 200 students have completed the programme, with several returning to become Mannings pharmacists after graduation. As the number of pharmacy students in Hong Kong increases, we hope the programme will expand further to benefit more pharmacy students and to show our continuous support to the development of the pharmacy profession in Hong Kong.
