Pharmacy Internships Abroad

Pharmacy Internship Programs

Candidates looking for Pharmacy internships abroad typically want some international professional experience to add to their resume. Pharmacy internships abroad include working in a locally owned 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.

What to Expect From a Pharmacy Internship abroad

Pharmacy internships in Madrid vary. Intern with a large, national organization whose mission is to serve the Spanish population via education, networking, and direct access to pharmaceutical products and services: as an umbrella company connected with both pharmacies and service providers, this is a broader placement.

With this international internship in Madrid, the main goal is the sustainability of the Spanish Health System. Pharmacy internships in Madrid also include working in a locally owned or run pharmacy, which means a lot of face time with the Spanish public. More and more, local pharmacies there are focusing on alternative or more “natural” medicines and prevention (intermediate Spanish and a minimum 2-month program duration required).

Hear From Our Candidates​

Adelante provided me with the resources to grow both personally and learn more about my field in a different country. Adelante staff prior to departure were quite helpful and answered all my questions as best as possible. The two week course at Eureka was great and very laid-back; the teachers are fun and helpful and all of them actually want to teach, so it is a great way to review your Spanish before working. As a pharmacy student, I was given a position at one of the many farmacias in Spain and helped patients find the best medication for their illness, rang out patients, processed orders, and completed paperwork for the pharmacy. I would suggest this program for those who are at least at a low intermediate level of Spanish because I was spoken to only in Spanish at my position and I know many positions at Adelante that are very similar. While there were no issues to report at my job, I would have felt comfortable reaching out to any of the Adelante staff if I did have any problems because they made it clear that they were there to help me. Adelante does a great job with housing because of its location in the center of Madrid and because they find a solution to problems or maintenance issues relatively quickly, especially if you physically speak to Angel who is the director of the Eureka language school.
