Enrolments in the Pharmacy Guild of Australia 2018 National Intern Training Program have now officially opened
Preceptors who currently employ a graduating pharmacy student are encouraged to recommend the program, says the Guild.
Pharmacy Guild of Australia National Intern Training Program Manager, Tim Roberts says that the program offers resources and knowledge of professional programs developed under the 6CPA.
“Having access to professional practice programs helps reinforce theoretical knowledge and allows interns to be exposed to the expanding roles available to pharmacists.
“To aid in the development and mentoring of interns, preceptors are provided with ongoing support and resources throughout the program.
“We have developed a dedicated Preceptor Manual and four CPD accredited modules that are designed to help preceptors manage their time and get the most out of their intern.
“The Guild ITP provides useful tools to aid preceptors in undertaking intern evaluations at multiple points throughout the intern year, encouraging open communication between both intern and preceptor,” he says.
Mr Roberts added that the Guild ITP’s balance of clinical and practical course content helps prepare interns to enter the industry with the skills to succeed.
“The course content is challenging, with a focus on the application of clinical skills, while also preparing interns for real world scenarios.
“Guild interns confidently enter the workforce ready to offer effective primary healthcare and efficient delivery of medicines, medication management and quality health outcomes,” he says.
Enrolments in the Guild Intern Training Program are now open across all states and territories in Australia. To learn more about the program or how to become a preceptor visit www.internpharmacist.com.au or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300 110 161 to speak with a course coordinator.
