The practical year is an important milestone between studying pharmacy and obtaining a licence to practise. Of course, there is much more to this profession than what can be taught through theoretical study.
We are pleased to be able to offer more than 30 young people the opportunity to complete six months of their practical training at BERLIN-CHEMIE AG or Menarini GmbH every year.
With us, you will get to know the structures of a research-based, manufacturing pharmaceutical company. As a fully-fledged team member with an experienced pharmacist at your side, you will accumulate valuable practical experience and, in the process: KNOWHOW TO HAVE FUN.

Our GMP training: practical and interactive
You will be given an overview of the world of GMP in a one-day seminar. Learn how it is ensured that pharmaceutical products are manufactured and tested to be consistent according to international quality standards. In a dialogue between you and our trainer, you will learn specific technical terms and requirements concerning everything to do with manufacturing, quality control and official monitoring and understand when these regulations are applied. You will subsequently receive a certificate on the GMP knowledge acquired.
InPharma: insight into career paths
InPharma is our interactive series of events about the pharmaceutical industry and your career paths. In more than 10 thematic modules, pharmacists and experts will give you an insight into your tasks and the various placement fields: from Research & Development, via Manufacturing right up to Regulatory Affairs.
Find out which pharmaceutical career paths are open to you after your licence to practise, which tips former interns can give you to start your career and whether a doctorate is absolutely necessary in the industry. Your colleagues will answer your questions and will be happy to exchange ideas with you.
Regular informal meet-ups on legal issues provide a clear view
The professional life of pharmacists is accompanied by various regulations and laws. We work through the most important laws for the pharmacy profession together with you at our regular informal meet-ups on legal issues. We invite you to bring to the table your own topics and questions, which will be discussed as a group.
We look forward to receiving your application.
