Thanks to the Judges!
On behalf of The Foundation for Managed Care Pharmacy, I would like to thank all of the judges for sharing their valuable time and expertise to FMCP during AMCP’s 24th Annual Meeting & Expo last month in San Francisco. Judges for FMCP 2012 Best Student Pharmacist and Best Graduate Student, Resident or Fellow Poster Contest evaluated a record 76 poster presentations. And judges for the FMCP 12th Annual National Student Pharmacist P&T Competition evaluated submissions from a record 29 teams. Both of these events provided some of the toughest competition we’ve ever had to judge at an AMCP national meeting. I’d also like to thank our judges for selecting the outstanding student pharmacists who applied to participate in the three 2102 internship programs, sponsored by Allergan, Genentech and Pfizer. All of your contributions help ensure the success of the Foundation.
