AiViva Internship Experience

Quotes from USC PharmD Candidates

My time at AiViva has been great. It exceeded any expectations I had. There are many different projects to work on, and thus many different opportunities to grow.”
- Mariam Geysimonyan

“Understanding the role of an industry pharmacist better.  For me, I didn't have any prior experience, but I understand, at least more, what the different functional roles would be for a company.  In addition, I think Dr. Tang-Liu's mentorship definitely helped with understanding the industry environment as well as workplace manners.”
-  Royal Siu

“Everyone at the company was always friendly and nice, and I couldn’t have asked for a better rotation! It was great to see how a smaller pharmaceutical company operates.”
