Topic of Internship
The Pharmacy Department is one out of many departments that have provided care for countless patients in Englewood Hospital. Englewood Hospital and Medical with its 118 year history has been around through the World Wars and Depression. It was incorporated into the community in 1888 as a non-profit, non-sectarian voluntary health care facility devoted to "the care, maintenance and cure of the sick, the injured and the infirm." It officially opened its doors on June 14, 1890 in a 12 bed wooden building on a three-acre tract of land on Engle Street. Now in its second century of service, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has evolved into a major medical and academic institution, providing world-class medicine in a community setting.
Summary of Internship
Through the course of the year interning at the Pharmacy department of Englewood Hospital, I received first hand experience on the duties of a pharmacist and pharmacy technician. Unit dosing, tubing medicines, and compounding were a few of the many tasks provided for me during my time in the pharmacy department all under the supervision of a pharmacist. I was also in the sidelines also observing technique and hearing the medical jargon in the pharmacy setting. Being part of the pharmacy department has been a rewarding experience that has given me a head start in my pharmacy career.
