Summary of Internship
Upon arriving at the Valley Hospital, I was given a set of choices for my rotation. I choose to intern at the Pharmacy Department and the Emergency Department. Valley gave me a firsthand look at the daily activities that go on in a Pharmacy Lab. Partaking in a variety of pharmaceutical activities has allowed me to experience their workload as well as open my eyes to its sheer importance. The Pharmacy Lab keeps the hospital running for itís the center of all medicine imports and exports. By taking part in this lab, I have begun to feel as an important part of the Valley Hospital.
