Therigy, LLC Launches Internship Program

focuses on the specialty pharmaceutical industry

Joseph D. Morse, president of Therigy, said the internship program has already welcomed its first participant, a student at the University of Florida’s College of Pharmacy in Gainesville.


“Our program focuses on the drug information side of the industry and provides students with a unique opportunity to learn about the high growth specialty pharmaceutical segment,” Morse said.


Pharmacy students in Florida are required to complete 11 months of Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) for graduation. Students participate in one-month rotations at a variety of institutions.


Therigy develops information products and provides consulting services to support specialty pharmaceuticals – biotech and high cost medications that require unique distribution, patient support and reimbursement services. The firm works with pharmaceutical manufacturers, pharmacies and payors to assure appropriate use and optimal outcomes.


Therigy is a member client of the University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program.
