Nominations are now open for the MIMS / Guild Intern of the Year Award, 2019. The winning intern will receive a travel and educational scholarship to the value of $4,500 courtesy of MIMS Australia.
Pharmacy Guild of Australia, National Intern Training Program Manager, Tim Roberts said the competition is an excellent opportunity to recognise a Guild Intern who’s gone above and beyond.
“A pharmacist’s intern year is crucial to their future development in the industry. 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”, he said.
This is the sixth year The Pharmacy Guild of Australia has partnered with MIMS Australia for the award.
Kumar Singh, Business Development Director, Primary Care – MIMS Australia said MIMS is pleased to continue their relationship with the Guild and their interns.
“The past winners have shown outstanding leadership skills and I look forward to another exciting year of nominations.
“Being able to reward excellence in young innovative people is extremely exciting for the whole team at MIMS,” Mr Singh said.
