Pharmacist Student Intern Position

CSHP is seeking an enthusiastic student pharmacist to provide support to CSHP members and to advocate for hospital pharmacy for 12 to 14 weeks in the summer of 2021. 

My summer internship experience at CSHP has been exceptionally rewarding. This is largely because of the way in which CSHP generously involves students in every aspect of its work and aims to maximize students’ learning. My 4-month internship has gone by all too quickly, but as a pharmacy student at the beginning of my career, I know that there will be many more opportunities in the future to get involved in the profession and with CSHP, the dynamic society that lives at the heart of hospital pharmacy.
