The Pharmaceutical Development Service formulated and packed pharmaceuticals for use in Clinical Trials at the NIH
NIH Pharmacy, Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Bethesda, MDSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: team spirit; excellent learning and training experience
A typical day at work involved the production of tablets & capsules and packing of other pharmaceutical products for use in Clinical Trials at the Clinical Center and other facilities within the National Institutes of Health. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with fellow employees, who had a strong Team Spirit. The interaction with the Pharmacists, many of whom were assigned to the Public Health Corps, was invaluable. I learned of the key role that Pharmacy and other members of the healthcare team played in the delivery of healthcare, and that it is critical that all members of the healthcare team work collaboratively. This experience had a profound effect when I later attended and completed medical school.
