Internship means the position of a student or trainee who works in an organization, with/without pay, in order to gain work experience or satisfy requirements for a qualification. Indian universities are not giving much preference to the internships as well as teaching faculty is also not guiding the students about internships except few members. Recently, this area is gaining much importance because of employers are started to give much preference to the interned candidates as well as some of the regulatory bodies are also taking MoU with internships offering platforms. Somewhere, I have seen that pharmacy students have this feasibility to go for training in hospitals and/or pharma industries but most of the students are not interested to spend time for that and simply purchasing those certificates from the black market. Does it worth? No!. Why?
Actually, faculty must explain the importance and necessity of training programs and create an interest in students. But every time it is not possible to guide all the students because of their administrative works etc. Therefore, students have to know why university/regulatory body specified this program in our course curriculum and what is the importance of that program?
You can find the more benefits and other information at For Importance of Internships after completion of at least one internship.
