Summary of Internship

Pharmacy isn't all fun and games. At first, the internship may seem boring, because of all the small tasks given to the intern such as counting pills, retrieving bottles and such. There is much more to learn because now of all times, Pharmacy has turned into a regulation of medication. For example, the amount of pills given and the dosage usually relate to the amount of times the person has to take it per day or what strength it has. Additionally, every patient has a different medication for him or herself. For example, one person may need blood pressure medication every month while another might need asthma medication. Additionally, many people have multiple prescriptions for multiple reasons. With all this, one becomes familiar with drug names (brand name and other trade names) and their effects and what they should not be taken with and what they should be taken with.
