Internship Programs & Summer Research

The Department of Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy recognizes the importance of an internship experience in providing students with perspective of where they envision themselves after graduation. Many of our students choose to intern in areas such as medication therapy management, patient safety, pharmacoeconomics and pharmacoepidemiology.

Our students have been connected through our program to summer internship opportunities with renown leaders in the pharmaceutical industry, including Biogen, Amgen, Inc. and other national and international organizations, including the FDA and WHO.
