My name is Lacie Newland and I am one of the Intern Directors at Intermountain Medical Center (IMC). We have several inpatient pharmacy intern positions open for the incoming class of pharmacy students and I wanted to inform you of the unique practice opportunities here at IMC!
As an inpatient pharmacy intern at IMC, you would be part of a program that advances as you progress through school. This advancement allows you to experience the full spectrum of care; from inpatient pharmacy processing to patient interaction to clinical exposure. As an incoming P1 student, you spend your first year understanding how the hospital functions by working Central Operations. As you begin your second year, you then move to the floors where your main responsibility is to work with patients to gather medication histories. In your final year of pharmacy school, you then have the opportunity to staff clinical shifts in which you assist pharmacists with their therapeutic consults, perform medication education, and discharge Transplant patients. In addition to your typical responsibilities, an internship at IMC allows you to connect with pharmacists and to develop the skills needed for residency or job placement.
The hours and shifts vary depending on your year in school, however, the minimum expectation is 8-10 hours per week; additional hours are often available, if desired. Scheduled shifts are developed based on the preferences and availabilities of all interns within the program.
