advanced practice rotations

MannKind is pleased to offer 6- or 12-week advanced practice rotations to 4th year pharmacy students in affiliation with the Keck Graduate Institute and University of Southern California. The rotation objective is to gain an understanding of various pharmacist roles in a biotechnology/pharmaceutical industry as it pertains to Medical Affairs and Clinical Development. This may include (but not limited to) activities in the following areas: promotional review committee, medical science liaison resources, scientific congresses, health economics, manufacturing, quality control and clinical operations.

This is a place that’s always open to new ideas. We are then able to move from idea to action really quickly with collaborative efforts from cross functions. Every day, I get to work with colleagues that inspire me through their sense of responsibility and passion for what we do. Working at MannKind makes me feel that I’m making a difference every day.
I came to MannKind to utilize my experience to make a positive impact and difference in people’s lives, including developing an outstanding high-performing team! Not to mention, we have a game-changing technology enthusiastically supported by passionate employees.
Mr. Mann once told me, “I don’t need the money, I already made my fortune. I’m here to help people.” Knowing we have the opportunity to carry out Al’s legacy and make a change for people living with diabetes inspires me every day.
I’m empowered by MannKind’s culture. The company lives its values of “Doing Right” and “Winning Together” as the organization promotes diversity by treating one another with respect and humanity and unites around a common cause of giving people control of their health and the freedom to live life.
I work for MannKind for the culture and the sense of family. I’m inspired to know we change people’s lives every day. We allow people to have the freedom to be people first. Love what I do!
If I could describe MannKind in one word it would be…exciting.
