Managed Care Pharmacy Curriculum
Updated August 2017
What is the curriculum?
The AMCP Managed Care Pharmacy Curriculum is a personalized course that was developed to assist faculty, managed care pharmacists, AMCP Diplomats, and other preceptors in teaching students and interns more about the managed care pharmacy principles that guide our healthcare system. The Managed Care Pharmacy Curriculum houses a full syllabus with corresponding recommended reading materials and resources. In addition, the curriculum provides links to ready-made presentations across topics from the History of Managed Care Organizations to Pharmacy Benefit Design.
How schools should use it?
Schools/Colleges of Pharmacy should propose the managed care pharmacy curriculum to the academic curriculum committee at his/her university. Schools may also consider implementing the managed care pharmacy curriculum, in its entirety or in part, into an elective course to provide student pharmacists with some level of exposure to the managed care pharmacy, which plays in integral part of patient care and patient access.
