Accredited intern training programs for New Zealand

A feature of the education and training of pharmacists in New Zealand is the requirement that all graduates must complete a period of supervised practice. 

Supervised practice must be undertaken while concurrently completing an Intern Training Program (ITP).  The ITP conduct programs in consultation with the intern’s workplace and preceptor, and provides assessments throughout the program.

We are responsible for quality assurance activities supporting the Pharmacy Council of New Zealand (PCNZ) accreditation of ITP providers in New Zealand against the Accreditation Standards for New Zealand Pharmacy Intern Training Programs
