AMCP Executive Fellowship in Health Care Association Leadership
In January 2021, AMCP launched the Executive Fellowship in Health Care Association Leadership. This immersive, year-long training program provides a rich, in-depth learning experience for a pharmacist interested in a career in health care association leadership or managed care pharmacy. The program reflects AMCP’s dedication to developing leaders in managed care. It is also consistent with the association’s role as the leading professional association dedicated to increasing access to affordable medicines, improving health outcomes, and ensuring the wise use of health care dollars.
The AMCP Executive Fellow receives collaborative training and professional development in a wide range of association leadership areas, including governance, strategy development and implementation, strategic communications, and operational leadership. As a brand ambassador for AMCP, the fellow will receive exposure to external organizations and thought leaders, expanding their knowledge of the broader health care ecosystem and allowing them to build their professional network. The program’s scope and learning activities encompass the certified association executive (CAE) domains and content areas.
The AMCP Executive Fellow works directly with the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer, and other AMCP leaders, and serves as an adjunct member of the AMCP Leadership Team.
