Description of the Activities in which the Student Pharmacist will be Involved
American Health Care is a health management company that specializes in delivering patient-centric programs—pharmacy benefit, disease, and therapy management—that emphasize clinical excellence. Student pharmacists will have the opportunity to work alongside the clinical pharmacists of American Health Care and collaborate on various managed care projects focused on formulary development. To gain a greater understanding of this specialized pharmacy field, activities will include: prior authorizations; drug monographs; topic in-services; and search, evaluation, and presentation of scientific literature.
The experience can be structured as a 5-week or 6-week rotation. There may be a possibility to provide flexibility in how the rotation is structured for those in a non-traditional PharmD program.
