In March, Therigy welcomes its first pharmacy intern from The University of Florida (UF) College of Pharmacy. The University of Florida's clinical pharmacy clerkship program was established in 1974 and is a required course in the curriculum. Students are required to complete eleven months of Advance Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) rotations. Students will participate in a monthly rotation that follows the College of Pharmacy's curriculum and methodology for student evaluation.
Therigy's unique business model will allow pharmacy students to experience the research and development side of the industry from an entrepreneurial point of view.
"The experience that Therigy will provide is not a classical 'drug information' rotation, but more of a 'research and development' rotation focused on consumerist perspective business intelligence in a sector of pharmacy," says Therigy's Chief Pharmacist Russel Allinson. "Our goal is to teach the students about the specialty pharmaceutical industry and how to deliver information resources and services to the stakeholders in the industry."
Therigy looks forward to providing students with a unique learning experience that adds value to their education while fostering collaborative work and research opportunities with the faculty, and enhancing Therigy's position as a leader in the industry.
