University of Reading Malaysia Forms Partnership with AEON

The University of Reading Malaysia and AEON CO. (M) BHD. have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together in advancing the education of pharmacy students and enhancing the knowledge of pharmacists in the industry.

The MOU was signed by the UoRM Provost, Professor Tony Downes and AEON’s Pharmacist Manager, Ms Elisha Teh during a ceremony held at the University of Reading Malaysia (UoRM) campus in EduCity, Iskandar Puteri, Johor. The event was witnessed by other representatives of AEON and academics from the Reading School of Pharmacy Malaysia.

Under the partnership, AEON will provide opportunities to spend time in their premises to first and second year students undertaking the MPharm 2+2 programme at UoRM, with the supervision and guidance of registered pharmacists of AEON Wellness. The University has agreed to deliver an annual lecture, seminar or training session on public health science to benefit pharmacists and nutritionists employed by AEON Wellness.

Dr Samantha Weston, Head of Pharmacy at UoRM said: “We are delighted to be partnering with AEON to boost the practical experience of our pharmacy students and support the life-long learning and development of pharmacists in the field. We choose to work with AEON Wellness due to their continued efforts to professionalise the pharmacy industry in Malaysia, and wish to support them in every way we can. We are grateful to the team at AEON for their commitment to provide our students with placements which we believe will be instrumental in equipping our students for the workforce.

“Our team from the Reading School of Pharmacy Malaysia is also pleased to be able to engage with pharmacists of AEON Wellness and play a part in furthering their education.”

Both parties are aiming for the first group of pharmacy students to begin internships with AEON during the semester break in June next year. Ends.
