Search for best intern

Nominations are now open to choose Australia’s best intern pharmacist in the MIMS/Guild Intern of the Year Award for 2018.

The winning intern will receive a travel and educational scholarship to the value of $4,500, courtesy of MIMS Australia.

Pharmacy Guild National Intern Training Program Manager Tim Roberts says the competition is an excellent opportunity to recognise an outstanding intern.

“A pharmacist’s intern year is crucial to their future development in the industry,” he said. “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 MIMS/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 judging criteria.

“Intern candidates can be nominated by their supervising preceptor, employer, pharmacist or colleague, Guild ITP clinical tutor, or they can nominate themselves.”

This is the fifth year the Guild has partnered with MIMS Australia for the award.

“MIMS is pleased to continue their relationship with the Guild and their interns,” MIMS Australia Business Development Manager, Primary Care Dinah Graham said.

“The past winners have shown outstanding leadership skills and I look forward to another exciting year of nominations.”
