The National Pharmaceutical Council sat down with one of its former interns, Jan Hansen, to discuss how its intern program impacted her career choices.
Hansen, vice president of U.S. Medical Affairs Evidence for Medical Access Medical Unit, participated in NPC’s pharmaceutical program in the 80s.
During the interview, Hansen said NPC’s program opened the door to a wide array of departments under the company’s umbrella.
“The NPC internship program at that time, in conjunction with the American Pharmacists Association, placed pharmacy students at a pharmaceutical company for a summer,” Hansen said. “Throughout that period, the intern had the opportunity to rotate through various departments within the company and get exposed to all aspects of the pharmaceutical and manufacturing industry.”
Hansen added the program ultimately led her toward a career in the pharmaceutical industry.
The interview with Hansen came on the heels of NPC’s announcement it was accepting applications for its two-year Postdoctoral Health Policy Fellowship program.
