Thank you for my wonderful journey with AAPS.

I am excited to share my employment news. I am now working as Quality Assurance Manager and I couldn’t have done it without your help and encouragement.

At AAPS I really enjoyed friendly, ambient and professional support from management and professors. I will mostly miss my friends, especially Mr. Yousefian’ s Food Science classes.

I want to specifically thank all the instructors, especially Mr. Yousefian who was like a father for me and anytime he was accessible for my requests and questions to help me get the job of my dreams as QA Manager. I have never seen or met such a nice advisor during my whole life until now.

I also want to thank Steven for leading Student Services and for his and all the staff for the support in helping me find a job and for help with my interviews, interview skills and resume.

I would also like to thank Laleh for her kindness and support from the beginning and until I graduated.

sana_kazDear Laleh and Steven,

It brings me great pleasure to inform you that I have officially signed the permanent full time position contract as Clinical Data Manager with McDougall Scientific Ltd since March 2017. I had started working with them as a contractor last November and they eventually hired me on March.

As you might know, this has been my third position in Canadian Pharmaceutical Industry since I started working with Axiom last year when I was studying the last semester of my program in AAPS. Then I continue working in Biopharma for few months which led to my cooperation with McDougall Scientific Ltd. All of these steps and accomplishments could not be possible without your help. I just wanted to thank you for your supports; expert advices; encouragement and also; for the great experience I had in APPS.

In addition, I would like to express my special gratitude to George for the valuable endeavors and for creating such a wonderful environment where learning was fun and rewarding.

Warm Regards,

sana_kazDear Steven,

I have news to share! I have recently received an offer of a full time position at Biopharma Services Inc. in the data management department.

Though this marks the end of a wonderful journey with AAPS, I am equally excited starting another journey at Biopharma. The instructors were very caring and interested in students’ well-being and I would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Peivand Pirouzi, Dr. John Eisenhoffer and Prof. Beatrice Cardone for their extra effort as I was the only student without a pharmacy/medical background. They made sure every class was fun, educational and interactive. The staff and the management team have always stepped up and helped me out in every possible way.

Once again, Thank you for all support and encouragement you have provided me during my time at AAPS.

Best Wishes,

Nilanjana Dutta

Food, Technology, Safety and Quality Graduate

sana_kazHi Steven and everyone at AAPS,

I am happy to announce that following graduation (QC/QA) I have just started working in Mississauga as a Mining Chemist with Agat Laboratories, Mississauga. The work is good and I enjoy it. This job was posted on AAPS’s ‘Who’s Hiring?’/Indeed and I applied on a Friday and was called for an interview the following Monday and then the following week I was called in to sign the papers. The nicest aspect of this job is that it is metallurgical analysis which I had done in my previous job. It also means standing on my feet for 8 hours and I work with equipment that I worked previously with such as ICP-OES, ICP-MS, Atomic Absorption (Acetylene Flame), carbon/sulfur/nitrogen analysers and extraction equipment for heavy and precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum along with nickel chromium and selenium.

Once again I want to thank you immensely for all your efforts in improvising my resume with the necessary tweaks that caught the attention of Agat Labs; I will miss you, the AAPS members and the ‘joie de vivre’ you emanate at AAPS.

sana_kazHi everyone,

I just want to update you regarding my co-op experience here at Lear Co-packaging Ltd/EliteMed, so far it’s been great and I have even bigger news, wait for it…

Our General Manager worked with me on reviewing, updating, revising and formatting all of the company SOPs, we also developed a new Quality Manual. I am also very involved in operational running’s of the business from receipt to shipping and other QA related activities.

Just yesterday, she offered me a QA/QC management role (full time) and I accepted. I will be working (GMP) with NHPs, vitamins, and medical devices. I really like the flexibility that comes with the job and the family atmosphere that goes along with it. I am also in the process of renewing and amending the company’s DEL (distribution and importation is in the pipeline) as well as the site licence and medical device applications. This new role for me really complements the QC/QA Diploma I achieved at AAPS.

I really appreciate all the knowledge and experience that I learned from all you guys. AAPS’s Regulatory GMP courses are really helping me right now (with all the Health Canada applications which I’m tasked to do). AAPS’s GMP courses and Lab training (lab techniques and soft skills – dealing with difficult people). It is so true what I learned in terms of the interview skills workshop at AAPS too “companies hire people with a good attitude, knowledge often comes next”. I really appreciate everything, at AAPS you have all helped me so much!

One last thing I have to say, I am also glad that I quit the production (survivor) job that I had before and attended AAPS. It is one of the greatest decisions that I made to focus on studying for bigger things and now I have achieved my dream job.

I wish you guys at AAPS all the best, and I know that you will continue to help guys like me who just came here in Canada and prove that they can still do the job that they did back home!

Sincerely,

Gerald Garcia
Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance and Quality Control Graduate

sana_kazThank you to everyone at AAPS for helping me in my postgraduate training and for helping me find suitable employment related to my Clinical, Drug Safety and Pharmacovigilance Diploma from AAPS, as well as student services for helping with my resume and job interview skills… I am now really excited to be working at the McKesson Corporation (Fortune Top 500 Company) as a Health Services Case Manager, thank you all once again!

sana_kazIt brings me great pleasure to inform you that I have officially signed the written contract with Apotex. I will be starting in a QC Chemist position for the Validation lab on November 14th 2016.

I couldn’t have done it without AAPS. Apotex’s interview process was quite challenging, and it was my GMP and lab manuals which supported me for many of my answers. Of course, the information could not have stuck without great instructors, and I give credit to Jason and Steven for being two of the very best. Steven’s stories made classes entertaining and memorable, and he was extremely helpful when approached for career advice. Jason’s precision in mentoring students ensured that they walked away with the full set of lab skills and knowledge that they needed. He was extremely open to feedback, and did everything he could to enhance the students’ learning experiences. Valentina exemplified good documentation practices and definitely made me a better documenter.

I look forward to being in the position to give back to AAPS some day! Thanks again for making such opportunities possible for students like me.

Wishing you all the best.

Sana Kazilbash
Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance and Quality Control Graduate

Pharmaceutical Quality Control Graduate

r_parihaar_frI am writing this note to share my overall journey from a IT Consultant to a PV Coordinator.

Last year, during this time my day was split into two half, first where I would work as a IT Consultant and the second half I would call/email various Universities in Canada and in the US to understand their course offering. I spent most of my time looking for contacts and reference in LinkedIn who can suggest a course on Clinical Research. I am a Bio-Tech graduate and getting back to my line, i.e. Science, was the most important thing. After much deliberation, debate and suggestions, I finally decided to move to Toronto and take up this Clinical Research course from AAPS.

Since then, my journey has been brilliant. There has been learning everyday and all that came from some of the best in the industry. It was a change I have been looking for and wanting since the time I graduated. The quality of teaching, course content and the mode of delivery is just outstanding. I am extremely happy that I made this decision to take up this course from AAPS. Now as I prepare for my 5th Sem, I have been hired by AXIOM as PV Coordinator – I know all this was possible because of the exposure and learning I got from the course. I am confident that just like me, AAPS will continue to harness and mold careers of many students.

I want to thank George for their valuable teaching and encouragement for creating such a wonderful environment where learning is fun and rewarding.

Thank you & Regards,

Rani Parihaar
Clinical Research Graduate

a-sran“I believe being able to obtain a QA/QC Post Graduate Diploma was critical in the success of my career.”

My invaluable experience at AAPS has been both eye opening, and greatly instructive. Graduating with a Master’s Degree from India, I felt unprepared to enter the workforce and had no idea where to start. The program itself was informative and the instructions highlighted the importance of each concept. It has provided me the relevant pharmaceutical experience and industry knowledge that gave me the best opportunity to have a great start to my career in Quality Assurance.

The best part about this program is the feeling of support and I had an opportunity to learn from outstanding people who had a true passion for excellence. I would like to show my deepest gratitude to Mr. Jason Chu, Mr. Andy Tallevi and other staff who has a concern for each student and who fostered an environment of growth and success. I would like to thank Mr. Jason who helped me to attain my first job through resume critiques and interview preparation.

The most beneficial aspect of completing this diploma was that I was able to enter the workforce immediately as a Quality Assurance Associate and I feel confident in my knowledge and skills and believe I am ready for the challenges ahead in my career.

Thank you AAPS.

Warm Regards

Food Safety & Quality Graduate

Academy of Pharmaceutical Applied Sciences (AAPS) educates students in a very creative way and encourages them to think out of the box. However, the college not only helped me to excel in the academic field and find job in the food industry, but also taught me a lot about different cultures and how to appreciate them. I have found that the method of teaching is different from the one I am used to. Most of my courses have hands on aspect.
I really enjoyed taking Food Safety and Quality program and I thought that it was very informative. After taking this program I felt confident about going out into the work force as a graduate.

Ramin Sayad Haghighi
Food Safety & Quality Graduate

The copious exposure to the industry language and practical exercises in the classroom and lab were valuable.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for aiding me through the program and into the work field. I would also like to thank Wendy and Julia for always being there for the students.

Next Wednesday will be my 3 months anniversary at Apotex, and I want to take this opportunity to thank AAPS for helping me to join pharmaceutical industry.

You gave me confidence and helped to understand that AAPS was the right choice and it was not too late to join pharmaceutical industry. Thank you.

I would like to thank you for all your support during the program as well as your advises for the resume and interview preparations. QC/QA program actually gave me all the knowledge and requirements in order to be eligible to apply for different QC or QA positions. I succeeded to put the first step forward in one of the best pharmaceutical industries (even before finishing the program) with your constant help and the amazing team of instructors. I will definitely, recommend AAPS to all my friends who are as desperate as I was when I first came to see you. AAPS opens up the door to the industry as you PROMISED me, however, it requires perseverance, and efforts. Thank you so much for helping to make my dreams come true.

Sarada
Clinical Research Diploma Graduate

Thanks to the distinctly structured Pharmaceutical QA/QC Diploma program that I pursued in AAPS, I’ve since joined as QA-Microbiologist with Apotex. With no prior Pharmaceutical industry experience, the courses facilitated by industry professionals helped me immensely in garnering a good understanding of the industry and with the support of the job search resources that assisted in resume development and the interview process to finally step inside the Pharmaceutical industry. I am so delighted and take this opportunity to thank all the staff in AAPS especially you, Laleh, for extending your support, encouragement and for that great reference.
