Victorian Hospital Pharmacy Intern Program

SHPA coordinates applications and efficiently, transparently and fairly matches candidates for Victorian Government subsidised internships as well as a number of Victorian public hospital funded internships.

80 Department of Health and Human Services and some Victorian public hospital funded pharmacy internships are available through the 2019 matching process. 

Public and private hospital pharmacies fund additional internships from time-to-time and advertise positions on hospital or health service websites, local government careers websites, through Seek or on SHPA’s Jobs board

Want to host an intern? 

Ahead of potential new positions becoming available, sites should be prepared to demonstrate their readiness and reasons for hosting an intern training program and be able to provide hospital demographics and the ability to support a supernumerary training position.
