B.S.P.S. Internship Links
All BSPS students must complete a 10-week internship placement at the end of the third year of study. The internship is designed to provide practical, real-world experience in the student's field.
Prior to completing the internship, students participate in a Professionalism Institute in which they learn leadership skills, ethics, effective communication and problem solving, including application processes, resume development and soft skills that are valued highly in the workplace. The Professionalism Institute begins with a Professional Advancement Conference in the Fall semester of the third year, and is followed by mandatory seminars throughout the year.
The mandatory internship makes the B.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences program at The University of Toledo unique. Our students graduate with a strong background in the sciences, as well as practical workplace experience that prepares them for the workforce or for continued education in medicine, business, veterinary science, dentistry, public health and many other disciplines.
The Internship Office maintains resources that are specialized for pharmaceutical science majors. Our students use Resume Builder software to fine-tune resumes and cover letters. InterviewStream offers web-based video interview practice and skill enhancement prior to completing internship applications and competing for full-time opportunities. Students also develop a LinkedIn profile to assist with professional networking and career development.
Internship resources are identified and published for students to review and begin the application process. Competitive internships are available throughout the country and internationally. With the assistance of the office staff, students are counseled and encouraged to consider their personal career and educational goals as they apply and are offered positions.
Institute for Leadership in the Sciences
In advance of the internship, students participate in the Institute for Leadership in the Sciences.
Throughout the junior (P1) and senior (P2) years, the institute offers:
- Seminars in communication and professional/technical presentation skills
- Job search assistance and networking experiences
- Interview practice and resume development
- Graduate and professional program application forums and advice
