Sharon Tang

ed this online tutorial platform in September 2017. I have a BPharm (1996) and a PhD in Pharmacognosy (2003) obtained from the University of London School of Pharmacy and have worked in community and in hospital in the UK. Since moving to Hong Kong several years ago I have passed the registration exams (2012). I have also taught pharmacology and human disease topics to pharmacy technicians and student nurses, which included writing exams and marking them. The Facebook group I run provides support for pharmacists taking the Hong Kong pharmacy registration exams.
