ASHP Selects 1998 Summer Intern

James M. Hoffman, a fourth-year doctor of pharmacy student at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, has been named ASHP's 1998 Summer Intern. He began his ten-week internship on June 15.

Hoffman recently served as secretary for his college's student chapter of the Pennsylvania Society of Health-System Pharmacists and is a member of the American Pharmaceutical Association-Academy of Students of Pharmacy. He is a pharmacy technician at a New Jersey health-system. 

The ASHP Summer Internship is a ten-week training program for undergraduate pharmacy students coordinated by the Society's Office of Membership and Organization Liaison. The program is designed to introduce students to the work of pharmacy associations and membership development activities. 

ASHP is the 30,000-member national professional association that represents pharmacists who practice in hospitals, health maintenance organizations, long-term care facilities, home care, and other components of health care systems. ASHP believes that the mission of pharmacists is to help people make the best use of medications. Assisting pharmacists in fulfilling this mission is ASHP's primary objective. The Society has extensive publishing and educational programs designed to help members improve their delivery of pharmaceutical care, and it is the national accrediting organization for pharmacy residency and pharmacy technician training programs.
