How to get an intern pharmacy job

Getting a pharmacy internship can involve a little leg work, but be persistent. Your hard work will pay off.

Here are some places you can begin your search for the perfect pharmacy position.

National Australian Pharmacy Students’ Association

At the beginning of 2019 NAPSA and LocumCo formed a partnership with the aim that all Intern positions throughout Australia will be listed on the LocumCo website at no charge. All students will be directed to the LocumCo site for their Intern positions and their CVs will be forwarded to potential employers on application.

This program provides incentives for students wishing to undertake their pharmacist internship in a rural or remote pharmacy.

Intern Development Programs

Some large pharmacy groups run Intern Development Programs. Details of any intern pharmacist positions available should be on their website.

Contact your local pharmacy

Many pharmacies offer intern pharmacy jobs, so check with your local pharmacy to see if they provide on-the-job training.
