Student Pharmacist Center
“No matter how involved you are in AMCP or how much time you have to give, AMCP will always provide our student members with a plethora of resources and opportunities that cannot be found elsewhere. Since I became a member in 2020, I have been able to attend national conferences, network with some of the best professionals in the field, join the Student Pharmacist Committee, and now serve as the chair of the committee. I would have never expected so much coming from a small pharmacy school in Northeast Pennsylvania, but here I am thanks to AMCP, good mentorship, and support from my university. As chair of the Student Pharmacist Committee, I plan on returning the favor that AMCP has given me and help the next generation of students pursuing managed care pharmacy. No matter what goals you have within managed care, AMCP’s team, mission, and strategic priorities can help you achieve them. Please know that you can always reach out to me or any of my colleagues on the Student Pharmacist Committee for help with anything you need.”

What is Managed Care Pharmacy?
Managed care pharmacy is the practice of applying evidence-based medication use strategies that enhance population health outcomes while optimizing health care cost and resource utilization. More simply put, managed care pharmacy couples clinical and economic evidence to improve the delivery of healthcare across entire populations.
Resources for Student Pharmacists
AMCP provides a wide array of resources to supplement student understanding of managed care. Student pharmacists can access on-demand webinars, which cover a range of topics including managed care pharmacy, internships, professional skill development, post-graduate preparation and much more.
Student chapters are a collaborative effort from the student members, student leaders, faculty, and AMCP. This is a great way to meaningfully grow your professional network and foster strong relationships for the future.
