Carl F. Emswiller Summer Internship in Association Management
Carl F. Emswiller
In December 2010, the APhA Foundation dedicated the APhA Summer Internship in Association Management in honor of Carl F. Emswiller. Jewell Emswiller, Carl’s wife of 53 years, established a fund to honor Carl’s innumerable contributions to pharmacy.
The internship is structured to provide student pharmacists experience in national association activities, pharmacy practice issues, educational programming, state services, scientific affairs, student affairs, public relations and project management. Pharmacy students who are selected to participate in the internship will learn about the many aspects of pharmacy practice and professional organizations, and their activities will have a special emphasis on collaborative practice, which was an integral part of Emswiller’s career.
Student pharmacists who are interested in learning more about the internship, including application requirements and instructions, are encouraged to visit the APhA Experiential Program page on the APhA website.
