PHPR 4780: Internship in Pharmacy Practice/Pharmacy Administration, 2018

-Fall 2018/Spring 2019 Interns: Deadline: Monday of Finals Week-

Course Description

This course/experience is an integral component of the BSPS program within the College of Pharmacy

and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Students will acquire practical knowledge and hands-on experience in

Pharmacy Administration by working in pharmacies, the pharmaceutical industry or with health care

systems. The experience will provide to the student an opportunity to work with leaders and leading

institutions in pharmacy practice and/or the pharmaceutical industry in order to gain a contemporary

perspective of the principles and concepts described and studied through classroom instruction.

Students will complete an eight to 12 week experience at a host institution that will include

developing, implementing and reporting on a project that is of importance to the institution and

consistent with the student’s program of study.

Course Outline

Students will gain hands-on experience in pharmacy or health care administration, pharmaceutical

sales and/or marketing in a working environment. While each internship will be unique for each

student, common as well as experience-specific objectives will be achieved. Projects will involve

working with a primary preceptor at the host institution or company and will encompass the

development, implementation, analysis and presentation of a research, practice or business problem

pertaining to the mission of the given health care environment. All projects will promote learning

competencies through a structured process of research and inquiry.

► Section 1 Background:

 Identify a project that was completed/worked on during internship (for example Development of a 90-Day Prescription Drug Program)

 Students should search relevant research databases (PubMed, Google Scholar, etc.) to gain a better understanding (background information) about their assigned project topic area

 Summarize information found in the first section of paper

 Critically comment on the need for this project in the current health care system (ex. Need for a 90-day prescription drug plan at an independent pharmacy)

►Section 2 Project Development:

 Record steps to project execution.

 Summarize aspects of work carried out. Details to be recorded include: date of work; contacts made; materials and methods used (ex. Researched & compared competitors’ drug

formulary for their store discount program)

►Section 3 Results/Outcome:

 Summarize aspects of data collected (ex. Did you create an Excel document?), and raw outcomes assessments (if applicable), OR summarize the outcome of your project.

►Section 4 Challenges & Lessons Learned:

 Reflection and personal evaluation

 Summarize any challenges and lessons learned from working on your project (ex. It was difficult to determine which drugs an independent pharmacy should use in their plans).

Include areas of improvement (ex. My methods for organizing and interpreting data was

initially confusing and I had to work on my knowledge of Excel) and how you would have

done things differently.

►Section 5 Project Implications:

 Discuss how your project would be helpful to your internship site (ex. It would help increase revenue, increase new customer acquisition, etc.) and how it may help the

healthcare system overall. (ex. As independent pharmacies struggle to compete with larger

chains, acquiring new customers and revenue will help them maintain a sustainable

business model.)

setting, and/or in administrative offices of community chain pharmacies or managed care settings.
