Ho Si WaiYear 4 student of Pharmacy Technology
I could still remember how nervous I was when I first encountered sterile compounding. Since all equipment was new to me, I wasn’t sure what I should do. Fortunately, our teacher patiently explained the steps to us and I took the chance to discuss with my classmates afterwards. After that, my tension was finally eased.
