Being an intern for RxPharmacist has been one of the most rewarding opportunities I’ve had so far in my professional career. This internship was an effective and valuable transition between graduating pharmacy school and starting my current medical writing job. Not only is the internship remote (hello Work From Home!), but it is also flexible in the sense that you can learn about various different aspects of medical writing, entrepreneurship, marketing – you name it. I decided to focus on medical writing and marketing. Over the 10 weeks, I improved my medical technical writing, organization, and time management skills. I also learned about the world of start-up businesses and marketing, which was incredibly interesting and new to me. I supported the development of the Texas MPJE guide, which helped me pass my own board exam. Getting paid to pass your board exams seems too good to be true, but it is in fact a reality! Throughout the process, the team provided constant feedback and clear communication which helped me grow personally and professionally. I was also provided multiple networking opportunities, which opened the door to endless possibilities. I highly recommend applying for this internship because it is a great way to enter the “working world” after being in school for so many years. Trust me, the 10 weeks will fly by and you will come out of this internship ready to take on your next job!
