Summary of Internship

My internship is in the pharmacy department of Valley Hospital. Every Thursday I work with various pharmacy technicians. The pharmacy technicians are one of the busiest people because of Valley’s policy of providing 24 hour medication to all of their patients. I help them organize medication, label medication, fill syringes, extempt pills, and transport medication to various departments in the hospital. This internship has given me a first hand experience on how a hospital pharmacy functions.
