Irene Chung

Graduate • Professional Certificate

Irene Chung is a PharmD candidate.

Field site: Australia

Career plans: Complete a pharmacy residency and practice in ambulatory care.

Why global health: “Global health has allowed me to think about health care from a broader perspective beyond what we learn in pharmacy school. I’m also interested because I believe health care is a human right.”

“Completing the certificate in global health and my rotation in Australia reinforces to me what a unique opportunity global health is for exchanging knowledge and resources. In health care, there’s always more to learn and too much information to know everything at any given point in time. What’s useful is knowing what resources are out there to obtain the information you need.” — Irene Chung
