All the PCN Approved Hospitals for Pharmacy Internship programme

The pharmacy internship programme is compulsory one-year training for all pharmacists in the country. All graduates of accredited pharmacy schools in Nigeria, as well as all foreign pharmacy graduates, are mandated to go through this training before they are licensed.

There are many institutions that the Pharmacists Council of Nigeria has given the approval to run the internship programme. Some are community pharmacies, pharmaceutical industries, and state and federal hospitals. We also have some health and research agencies, such as NAFDAC, NIPRD, and PCN, where pharmacists can also undergo their internship training.

In this post, we will discuss only the approved hospitals for pharmacy internship programmes in Nigeria. All the hospitals fall under these three categories in order of hierarchy:

  1. Federal Teaching Hospitals
  2. Federal Medical Centres
  3. Specialist/Military/State/Private Hospitals

Note that some of these institutions might currently not be offering the internship programme again. We will also endeavour to update the list as new institutions are added. In order to secure an internship in these listed places, you have to submit your CV to their administrative offices, since not all of them actually advertise for openings.
