Pallavi Ramhit

MedActiv Phoenix

Having always being inspired by the field of healthcare, I graduated from the University of Mauritius with a First-class Honours Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmacy (BPharm) in 2015. With a major interest in medicine, I carried out a project on the biological effects of some selected Mauritian endemic plants in at the University of Mauritius and today I am among the writers of an article titled ‘Multi-targeted effects of untapped resources from the Mauritian endemic flora’, published in the South African Journal of Botany. I am also a member of the Pharmacy Association of Mauritius (PAM). As a result of my exposure to different pharmacy settings including Victoria Hospital, A.G Jeetoo hospital, Fortis Clinique Darne and Ajanta Pharma (Mauritius) Limited, I have acquired greater knowledge, skills and experience in the pharmacy profession. Being passionate, optimistic and motivated, I joined MedActiv as pharmacist in June 2017. With full dedication towards my work, my team and the customers, I am currently the pharmacist in charge of MedActiv Galien. Having the IBL values engrossed in my heart I strive for excellence in serving our customers to their full satisfaction.

I did my schooling at College Du St Esprit in Quatre Bornes, where I was the Vice-Head boy in the year 2013. After completing my Higher School Certificate, I went to India for my further studies. I obtained my BPharm Degree with a First-Class Honours from the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences in 2018. I had the opportunity of doing my internship both in India and Mauritius at the Fortis Hospital Bangalore and the Victoria Hospital Candos as well as Pharmacy Capucine in Candos Mauritius. I thus gained experience working both in the public sector and the private sector. During my internship, I have realized how important it is to work systematically and diligently. Moreover, I have realized how collaboration and teamwork enhance productivity and give rise to a good work atmosphere. I have understood the importance of developing a good team spirit. I believe that good communication skills help to create an environment that is conducive to work.

After gaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmacy and an MBA, I started my career at IBL in 2010 after my internship at J.Nehru Hospital. I started at MedActiv Rose-Belle then moved to Phoenix, Ebene and Chaussée. My journey in the company has been very enriching and inspiring, helping me develop both professionally and personally. My independence and confidence has helped me to overcome all varieties of challenges that have come my way. I am married, a mother to an adorable daughter and I am a passionate lover of nature. I love mountain hiking as well as baking. Being friendly and jovial by nature has helped me to make lots of friends within the company. I also ensure that I always maintain a cordial and respectful relationship with my staff members at work. However, being a perfectionist, I also keep an eagle eye on the day to day business so as to prevent any kind of infringement which may affect the company’s image. I would willingly step in anytime for counselling of patients at the pharmacy, assuring customer satisfaction without forgetting that golden human touch. “Customers loves certainty, make sure you give it to them”.
