Undergraduate Programme in Pharmacy

In the Undergraduate Programme in Pharmacy Studies, our students take part in three different internships to help them guide their professional future towards the field that interests them most. Lara Jurado, a fifth-year student in the programme, tells us about her experience with company internships.

Third period

The first internship period takes place in the second semester of the fourth year. Students get to choose between an internship at a pharmacy or a hospital. I did my first internship, which lasts for three months, in a pharmacy where I could apply the knowledge that I acquired in my studies. Basically, my tasks involved helping patients, delivering medications and medical devices and giving indications on how to take medications. On a personal level, I learned a lot from the pharmacists I worked with and I saw that I could apply my academic knowledge to the internships.

Second period

During the second period, students generally choose the option that they didn't do during the first period. For the hospital internship, we prepare the medicines that are given to patients and we review their medication to see the interaction between the drugs they're taking.

Third period

The last internship period is done during the second semester of the fifth year. Thanks to the IQS Career Services Job Exchange, we can find internship offers at companies within the industry. The third internship even provides the possibility of joining the company once you finish your studies.

 

The internships definitely helped me decide where I want to focus my professional career. What I would like to do is join a pharmaceutical company's marketing department. During the final year of the Pharmacy Programme, we can choose between four different focus areas, including "Pharmaceutical Management and Marketing", which gives us the most entrepreneurial vision of the pharmaceutical industry.
