Internships that opened professional opportunities

Jay Prasanth Lagadapati


Most of us, at least in India, end up in the PharmD program primarily because they did not get into medical school. We have no idea when we start PharmD program, what it is and what its relevance to real life. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to work in a hospital setting during my second year. I learned several skills that are not taught in the pharmacy curriculum. When covid arrived in India in early 2020, all type of healthcare professionals were in great demand. Serving patients in their home during those challenging time, seeing them recover – boosted my confidence. Now, my goal is to provide healthcare in rural India, serving a great need and making a meaningful living.
