Position Summary

The goal of pharmacy internship is to ensure that every pharmacy intern obtains the experience necessary to enable him or her to practice competently. The program will bridge the gap between the student's academic background and practice through application and development of these skills on a day-to-day basis. Internship will provide the intern with experience in delivering pharmaceutical care to the patient.

MidMichigan Medical Center's interns are given the opportunity to have work experience in all aspects of pharmacy practice over 2+ years. We start with the basics and build on education, experience, and level of desire. Interns will learn medication dispensing (interpreting orders, drug product selection, packaging, labeling), computer order entry of medication and IV orders, inventory control, IV compounding (aseptic technique and chemotherapy preparation), chart review, patient counseling, renal dosing, antibiotic monitoring, parenteral nutrition management, anticoagulation dosing and management, and much more.

Internship is a cornerstone of a pharmacists' education because it integrates classroom knowledge with professional practice performance.
