Description: 
Kaiser Permanente Colorado: The Pharmacy Internship program is a long-term opportunity directed at training current pharmacy interns to become competent, professional, and reliable pharmacists in our communities. This internship begins in the first year of pharmacy school and ends after graduation from the PharmD program.
