The Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s Intern Training Program

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia has been committed to supporting and maintaining community pharmacy for over 88 years. We understand pharmacy and know what owners and employers look for in their interns.

Course Delivery

The Guild ITP is delivered to seamlessly incorporate on-the-job learning through a combination of practical self-directed learning exercises, written assignments, Pharmacy Board of Australia mandated requirements as well as face-to-face workshops held throughout the year at multiple locations across Australia. The program has been designed with our interns in mind, so we offer a flexible course structure that can be completed in as little as six months, or paced out over nine months depending on your needs.

Cost and Payment Options

Our Intern Training Program is the market-leader in price at just $1,855. We understand the financial pressures that interns face when first embarking on full-time careers, that’s why we offer a number of payment options allowing you to choose the plan that suits your needs.

  • Option 1: Single payment of $1855 inc GST
  • Option 2: 6 Monthly instalments of $309.16 inc GST
  • Option 3: 8 Monthly instalments of $231.87 inc GST
