PSA has named Veronica Moss the PSA MIMS Queensland Intern Pharmacist of the Year
Ms Moss, who completed her internship at Chemist Warehouse, Varsity Lakes on the Gold Coast from July 2015 to July 2016, was presented with her award last weekend by PSA Queensland Director Mark Lock.
Mr Lock said Ms Moss is an excellent example of what young pharmacists can achieve early in their career and is a role model for all intern pharmacists.
Varsity Lakes Chemist Warehouse Managing Pharmacist Eric Lee said he has watched Ms Moss grow into a confident young pharmacist with a bright future.
“Veronica’s strength is certainly her therapeutic knowledge and intelligence, which made her pre-registration year very challenging for me as I had to create learning experiences that pushed her further than our usual students,” Mr Lee said.
“She learnt quickly and was very reflective of her actions, making the year a rewarding one for both of us.”
Ms Moss has been involved in many activities outside the pharmacy including in the Clinical Intervention Pilot program, developed by Chemist Warehouse to use nationally.
She has also participated in the Laura Geitz Netball Clinic by providing therapeutic and first aid advice and promoting health and wellbeing.
As part of the award, Ms Moss will now attend PSA’s flagship conference PSA17 in Sydney from July 28–30.
And at PSA17, she will compete with other State and Territory winners for the coveted PSA MIMS National Intern Pharmacist of the Year Award.
MIMS Australia is the leading sponsor of the Award and contributes the major prize of $2,000 to each State/Territory winner to be used to help advance their pharmacy career.
