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
