Work placement

The aim of work placement is the achievement of a professional project, both interdisciplinary and industrial. The search of the placement has to be done by the student, helped by the persons in charge. The trainee is under the responsibility of an industrial supervisor and is followed up by a teacher of the master. The personal work developed by the trainee is carried out within industrial structures.

The placement lasts 5 months between March and September.

Students in 6th year of pharmacy do a placement of 7 months from March to September.

The personal work is assessed thanks to the placement report, the synthetic presentation and the supervisor's evaluation.
