2015 AMCP Foundation Best Poster Competition Award Recipients


The AMCP Foundation Best Student Pharmacist Poster and Best Resident or Fellow Poster, which took place at AMCP's 27th Annual Meeting & Expo in San Diego, CA, drew a record 66 poster presentations. The 2015 recipients were: 

  • Best Student Poster: Aashish Surti, University of California, San Francisco, “Industry Diagnostic Test Information Provision versus Expectations”

  • Honorable Mention: Graduate Student, Resident or Fellow Poster: Ahmed Guhad, CVS Health, “Utilization and Cost Metric Analysis on the Impact of a PA Program Targeting Compound Claims” 

The posters were judged on criteria including the paper’s scientific merit; evidence that the research conducted was innovative and practical; evidence that the results of the study match the paper’s conclusions; the relevance of the study to managed care pharmacy practice; the clarity of the material; and the knowledge of the author regarding the subject matter during his or her presentation.

The posters were evaluated by 7 Academy members: Amanda Bain, Heather Bonome, Jody Allen, John Barrett, Julie Howard, Tracy McDowd and Viviana Hathaway.

The poster award recipients receive a $500 check, a one-year AMCP membership, a complimentary registration for the AMCP Nexus 2015 this October in Orlando, and an engraved plaque.
