Internship aims to provide the students with the opportunity to enhance their academic programs’ knowledge and skills with field experience, related to their career interest, in a variety of settings insuring a natural transition to the highest level of professional preparation. The value of work-related experience gives our graduates the chance to be successfully placed in the world of work in national and international fields of work. It aims also to equip graduates with the necessary theoretical and applied skills which permit students to function effectively in the pharmacy professional fields as in each instance, students confront the challenges and issues which they will eventually encounter in their future careers in an actual working situation and discover the value of work in a pharmaceutical business or in a health care system.
