Pre-Pharmacy Internships

Our extracurricular experiences will help broaden your knowledge and understanding of the world around you. Junior Journeys, internships, shadowing and research.

Students applying to pharmacy programs generally engage in internship, shadowing, or volunteer work. Many schools will ask for recommendations from pharmacists and/or request that the student have experience shadowing a pharmacist. As a result, our students often volunteer with local hospitals or clinics or work in places such as CVS, Publix and Walgreens, among others. Some students choose to conduct internships at chemical industries to gain analytical and extraction methods, which are relevant to the pharmaceutical industry.
