Pharmacy Internships


After completion of their second year at the UW-Madison School of Pharmacy, student pharmacist technicians often transition into a pharmacy intern role. This is initiated with the Summer Internship Program, which starts in late May and finishes in early August. During the summer, interns rotate through three different 3-week rotations as well as continue to work in their respective ambulatory or inpatient technician role. Each student will give a presentation to their peers as well as deliver a brief clinical pearl to the whole pharmacy department by the end of the summer. After the Summer Internship Program, these pharmacy interns continue to work as pharmacy interns in the evenings and on the weekends, completing medication histories throughout the hospital and assisting with discharges as needed.
