  • Overview


    Since 1858, Dohmen has been driven by the desire to get safe and effective treatments and cures to the people that need them most.  As entrepreneurs, we’ve looked for new and better ways of doing this year after year. Today, as Dohmen Life Science Services (DLSS), we bring the industry’s most comprehensive service array to Medical Device, Biotech and Pharmaceutical entrepreneurs, helping them get farther faster and keeping them focused on innovations that improve lives. 


    Our behavior is guided by four simple values –

    Caring: We are empathetic and respectful.  We ask “how can I help you”

    Committed: We are dedicated and persistent.  We ask “how can I make it happen”

    Creative: We are inventive and imaginative. We ask “how can I do it better”

    Collaborative: We are cooperative and share our knowledge. We ask “how can we achieve success” 

    Courageous: We can see the future and we’re unafraid to forge it.

    This perspective defines us. How we act, how we do business, how we work with our clients and how we work with each other. They are essence of what makes us successful. They are what set us apart. 



    The Pharmacy Intern will work closely with DLSS staff, assisting them in a number of activities and projects.  The intern will receive formal training that develops their skill set and immerses the intern in a life science service provider setting. The intern will receive first-hand experience while having the opportunity to work with professionals who have extensive clinical and pharmaceutical industry experience.


    The intern will develop the professional skills and regulatory knowledge related to development and delivery of medical information to healthcare professionals, payers, consumers, and business partners through a variety of methods.
