A number of UK students training for future consumer medicine jobs have been provided with funding from Teva.
Britain's leading generic pharmaceuticals firm has provided bursaries for four students from across the UK via its annual Student Bursary Scheme, which is currently in its third year.
The funding support will help the prospective pharmacists, all of whom are affected by financial hardship, to afford to continue their pursuit of degree-level qualifications in consumer medicine.
Lynda Wilebore, human resources director for Teva UK, said the company is committed to supporting the pharmacy sector in Britain.
"This means we're not only interested in supporting the pharmacists of today, but also in ensuring the pharmacists of tomorrow get the best possible start," she explained.
Earlier this month, Teva published record-breaking sales results for the 2010 fiscal year, with the company now ranking as the largest generics manufacturer in Europe thanks to its recent acquisition of ratiopharm.
