A Pharmacy internship with Projects Abroad is an excellent opportunity to gain first-hand experience of pharmacy practices in a developing country. You’ll deepen your understanding of both global and local healthcare issues. You’ll also observe medical conditions that you might not see in your home country.
You can complete your pharmacy internship in the dispensary unit of a hospital, a local pharmacy, or a medical centre. Apart from observing in these clinical settings, you’ll also spend time dispensing medication during medical outreaches in disadvantaged communities. All of your work at outreaches is supervised.
Doing a Pharmacy placement abroad is a great way to give your CV an extra edge and it gives you unique talking points during interviews. You’ll also boost your job or study applications to further your career.
