Exercise was written by a group of final year pharmacy students as part of their 3rd year project. It is part of the Healthy Living topic so look out for more sections coming soon.
This section looks at how exercise benefits the body and it was written especially because this year London will be hosting the Olympic games and our students wanted to celebrate this with a sport –related section on the website.
As all the students who wrote it are studying Pharmacy at university, healthy living is very important to them. When they graduate from the University of Manchester they want to help people stay healthy by prescribing the right medicines and giving good advice on how to lead a healthy lifestyle.
To become a pharmacist our students need to study for 4 years at University before going into the workplace as a pharmacist. Pharmacists are the country's main experts in medicines and pharmacy is one of the fastest growing areas of healthcare. The majority of pharmacists work in hospital and community pharmacies to deliver medicines and health advice to patients. Pharmacists can also be involved in the pharmaceutical industry in the discovery and preparation of new and improved medicines, from their development in the lab to their distribution, usage and monitoring in the community and hospitals, both for patient care and research purposes.
Pharmacy is a great career choice for those who particularly enjoy science.
