Intern program information

One intern position is available in 2024 (government-funded)

 The newly developed Pharmacy Intern Program will be divided in three areas: Dispensary, Manufacturing/OTC and Clinical. Preceptor and science educator are here to provide one-on-one supervision the first three to four weeks of each rotation. At GV Health, we value education for pharmacy interns – all qualified pharmacists will take turn to participate in intern training, supervision and share ideas. As the pharmacy intern develops, skills he/she is assessed as competent by the supervisor to the training records signed to indicate attainment. The preceptor and intern will have ongoing formative assessment and feedback sessions throughout the intern year, which may help to modify teaching and learning activities so that better learning outcomes can be achieved by the intern.

In May/June, the intern will participate actively in Health Promotion Project in GV Health and assist the reparation of the Annual Regional Weekend Meeting for Pharmacy Intern and Early Stage Career Pharmacists.

In GV Health, we also have an Allied Health (Sciences) Clinical Educator helps mentor and provides education opportunities and regular reflective practice discussion group for Pharmacy Intern to join – topics such as Dealing with conflicts, Resilience, Dealing with death/patient deterioration, Time Management, Professionalism and Accountability, etc. will be provided to ensure on Pharmacy Intern will have support other than just from the Pharmacy Department.
