Nominations are now open for the Intern of the Year competition for 2016.
Nominations are now open and the winning intern will receive a travel and educational scholarship to the value of $4,000 courtesy of MIMS Australia.
Pharmacy Guild of Australia, National Intern Training Program Manager, Tim Roberts says the competition is an excellent opportunity to recognise a Guild Intern who’s gone above and beyond.
“A pharmacist’s intern year is crucial to their future development in the industry,” Roberts says. “While it’s a compulsory part of the registration process, the internship should be perceived as an opportunity for young pharmacists to build a strong foundation for their professional career.
“The Guild Intern of Year award aims to celebrate an intern who has proactively sought to implement positive change to their pharmacy and in the process has demonstrated excellence in one or more of the core criteria.
“Intern candidates can be nominated by their supervising preceptor, employer, pharmacist or colleague, Guild ITP clinical tutor or they can even nominate themselves,” he says.
Dinah Graham, Business Development Manager of MIMS Australia says MIMS is pleased to continue its relationship with the Guild and the interns.
“The past winners have shown outstanding leadership and skills and I look forward to another exciting year of nominations.
“Being able to award excellence in young innovative people is extremely rewarding for the whole team at MIMS,” Graham says.
