Luther graduates who have pursued pharmacology are working as clinical pharmacists and researchers at universities, production technologists in the pharmaceutical industry, and family pharmacists in neighborhood pharmacies, among other placements.
Students interested in exploring pharmacology and other health careers should consider an internship during the three-week January Term or during the regular semester. These internships are primarily observational, but provide a practical introduction to the many health-care professions.
Internship placements are available in large medical complexes, county hospitals, medical laboratories, public health programs, and private practices. These programs vary to allow advisors the freedom to match specific internships with the career goals of the student.
