What did you like best about your internship/co-op? What type of work were you doing?

During my time at Patheon, I learned a number of chemical tests that are performed on raw materials in order to ensure high quality and purity before being used in pharmaceutical production. What I liked best was that I got the opportunity to learn many different lab tests and techniques, while becoming more independent and confident in my abilities. I was also able to learn about the overall organization and operation of a large global pharmaceutical company, and the processes involved in the development and production of pharmaceutical products. Overall, my time at Patheon was a very positive experience for me, during which I gained a lot of valuable experience which will surely benefit me in my future career.
