Liam Mendiolea has been named the PSA MIMS QLD Intern of the Year Award winner, PSA said today.
The Intern of the Year Award acknowledges achievements of exceptional pharmacist interns in developing skills for their professional career.
Interns are recognised for striving to raise standards to provide a future model for the practice of pharmacy, before being fully registered.
Mendiolea began his internship in 2014 after graduating with a Bachelor of Pharmacy from James Cook University in Townsville.
He was applauded by the PSA QLD Branch Committee for outstanding pharmacy service as an intern as well as peer and professional engagement through his work with National Australian Pharmacy Students’ Association.
PSA QLD Branch Committee Chair Andrew Petrie says the achievements of Mendiolea demonstrate an outstanding commitment to pharmacy.
“This important Award recognises an exceptionally high-achieving intern and proudly highlights his success. It clearly shows the high standard of interns we have in Australia,” Petrie says.
MIMS Business Development Manager Dinah Graham congratulated the ACT Intern of the Year winner.
“MIMS is delighted to be involved in this exciting Award that recognises the future leaders of the pharmacy professional in Australia,” Graham says.
The PSA MIMS Intern of the Year Award, who will be chosen from the State/Territory finalists, will be announced at PSA16 conference in Sydney from July 29-31. The Award will go to the finalist deemed to have created the most significant innovation during the year.
