Candidates looking for Pharmacy internships abroad usually want some international professional experience to add to their resume. Pharmacy internships abroad include working in a locally owned and run pharmacy, interning for a pharmaceutical company or working for a Public Health organization, to name a few. Pharmacy placements mean candidates will attend to the public, help Spanish pharmacists diagnose and then dispense medicine, and assist Doctors on staff.
Public Health internships for pharmacy majors include, as an example, working for organizations on Nutrition projects or for Free Clinics that advocate about sexual health and offer free testing. These Pharmacy internship placements in Spain require at least a low-intermediate level of Spanish and studies in the medical, nursing or pharmaceutical fields.
Pharmacy internships are offered year-round, including Summer for candidates wanting to intern in between semesters. Candidates looking to invest in a PharmD internship abroad can also take advantage of this program. This is an amazing opportunity to experience first-hand how the Pharmacy profession operates in a foreign country, and to appreciate how the policies and procedures differ in Europe as compared to the United States.
