Pharmacy internships are required for many pharmacy programs. With the rise of the Covid-19 virus, a huge burden and responsibility has been put on pharmaceutical companies in working together to develop a vaccine. More than that, human talent is needed in the areas of medication preparation, design, and delivery.
Pharmacy internships are meant to expose students and graduates to pharmaceutical operations. The work can take place in either a healthcare facility or a pharmaceutical company. For example, Pfizer is conducting a summer internship program to provide insight into the area of managed care, where individuals can learn the principles employed to optimize health care resources and improve patient care outcomes. Internships generally last for 10 weeks whereby a stipend will also be provided.
The education level required is for students to be in a pharmacy degree with evidence of good academic standing. A plus factor is that our statistics show that pharmacy interns, on average, get paid $40 per hour. Not a bad starting job to have while being a student.
