RMIT University pharmacy student Harpreet Kaur Singh has been honoured with a Gold Medal supported by the PSA.
The prestigious medal is awarded annually to the top performing pharmacy student in the pharmacy program at the university.
PSA Victorian Branch President Benjamin Marchant congratulated Kaur Singh and acknowledged her excellent academic achievements.
“I applaud the 2016 Gold Medal winner as well as the outstanding efforts of all pharmacy students and teachers at RMIT—the newest pharmacy school in Victoria with the first cohort of graduates entering the workforce in 2014.
“In such a short period, RMIT students have excelled in Victorian pharmacy Awards including the PSA Pharmacy Intern of the Year 2015.”
Along with her gold medal, Kaur Singh received $1000 worth of PSA professional development and career opportunities.
She is hoping to pursue a career in hospital pharmacy and is currently undertaking an internship at the Austin Hospital in Melbourne.
Marchant said as the peak national health organisation for pharmacists, the PSA is once again proud to support this Gold Medal Award.
“I am delighted by the incredible calibre of young pharmacists graduating from the university,” Marchant says.
“I also look forward to students being involved in the PSA Career Support Program in Victoria, which can help students’ pursuit of a rewarding and satisfying pharmacy career in the years ahead.”
