About Pharmacy Plus
Pharmacy Plus is an affiliate of the University of South Florida College Of Pharmacy which opened for business in February 2015. The pharmacy was designed to be exemplify pharmacies of the future and serves as an
innovative training site for student pharmacists.
With its unique location within the USF Health Morsani Center for Advanced Healthcare, Pharmacy Plus is available to serve patients seen in the clinics, USF staff, students, and employees, or any patient that has no affiliation with USF but is interested in utilizing the pharmacy’s innovative services.
Pharmacy has changed exponentially over the past decade. The primary focus is no longer filling prescriptions, but instead catering to the needs of each individual patient including comprehensive patient education and pharmacogenomic testing. Pharmacy Plus was created to model the pharmacy of the future now.
With the many innovative tools and telehealth services offered at Pharmacy Plus, integrating these practices can help bridge the gap between pharmacists and physicians to provide better healthcare for patients.

INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY FOR MASS COMMUNICATIONS MAJORS
The USF Muma College of Business Dean’s Office is seeking interns for the spring 2018 semester. With registration around the corner, now is the time to apply as we prefer students earn course credit through the Zimmerman School of Advertising & Mass Communications.
We may be biased, but we think this is one of the best internship experiences for PR, journalism or advertising students.
ABOUT THE COMMUNICATIONS INTERNSHIP AT USF MUMA COLLEGE OF BUSINESS
The communications interns work in the USF Muma College of Business Dean’s Office, serving as a regular team member for the 3.5-person staff who handle the business school’s newsletter, special events, marketing, and public relations projects – along with a million other things.
Interns typically work a minimum of 10 hours per week (24 hours per week for those seeking three credit hours – which we prefer!). Work hours vary but are typically during the 8:45 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. time frame, though some projects can be done at the intern’s home, after hours, on the sofa, while watching The Walking Dead.
Specific projects are assigned once the full internship team has been brought on board each semester. For the spring semester, our busiest semester, we would ideally have 1-2 marketing students and 1-2 mass communications majors join us. Because we now have a video wall in the college, it would be terrific to have at least one telecommunications student on the team, too.
Some examples of projects that the spring interns handle:
WHAT YOU GET FROM THIS INTERNSHIP
This is an unpaid internship but that doesn’t mean you walk away empty-handed. We guarantee that our interns leave with valuable new skills that will help them land a job.
Because we are located in the Dean’s Office, students selected for this opportunity have many opportunities to build their network and to meet influential business and community leaders.
Other bonuses: attire is (most days) business casual (no jeans, no shorts). The office is near the Dean’s Office kitchen, where all the leftover food from lunch meetings seems to head – meaning interns frequently enjoy free lunch! Few internships will work around your class schedule more than this one will. You won’t have to worry about driving downtown or paying for parking because we are located on campus, in BSN 201.
WHO DO WE WANT AND HOW DO YOU APPLY?
We want interns who like being part of a team. We prefer interns who are juniors or seniors (but will consider sophomores who are go-getters!). We like interns who have a sense of humor (but know when it is time to be serious and just get the work done). Our favorite interns have been those who asked for direction on a project and then did it – coming back to ask questions or to clarify things but not waiting to be told exactly what to do and when.
We are not micromanagers. Our office is noisy and is often crowded. Our “to do” list never ends. We share this because we believe that our interns should know a few things coming in:
However, if you relish being able to take big chunks of a project and make it your own, then this this might be the perfect internship for you. If you like contributing ideas that might make a project more successful (or run more smoothly), then this could be a great fit. If you are comfortable multi-tasking but you know when you have to plow through dreaded chores because the deadline is looming, this could be the internship you dream about landing. If you like to write (and know that editors make your writing better) then this is the internship for you!
To apply: send a well-written cover letter and résumé to Lorie Briggs, email@example.com.
Applications will be accepted until December 1 for internships that begin in January.
Applying early is to your advantage: candidates who apply early will be interviewed early (meaning the slots could be full if you wait until December to apply).
