As we bear witness to the radical changes of the US healthcare system, AMCP is the trusted source I look towards to stay abreast new information, trends, and health policy. I have not seen another national organization engage student pharmacists to the degree that AMCP has through its unique P&T competition, premier summer internship programs, and more. No matter what career path you are considering, there is something for you at AMCP." - Kun Yang, University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, Class of 2015

AMCP has been a great source for up-to-date information, internship opportunities and networking within all aspects of the pharmacy profession.

- "Having been involved with AMCP ever since 1st year of pharmacy school, I have been exposed to a variety of career pathways within the profession of pharmacy, from MTM and Medicare Part D to speciality pharmacy and pharmacoeconomics. I had the opportunity to learn more about what Medicare Part D entails and the value of pharmacists-provided MTM services in public health. The National P&T Competition offers an invaluable opportunity for student pharmacists to gain critical thinking skills, analytical skills and clinical knowledge early on. You don't want to miss the P&T Competition opportunity! The AMCP Annual Meetings and Education Conference provide numerous opportunities for student pharmacists to explore the field of managed care pharmacy and meet professionals working in various managed care settings. I have grown so much professionally through my involvement with AMCP. I highly recommend student pharmacists to take full advantage of what AMCP offers and get the most out of this experience." - Ying Long, University of Southern California, Class of 2016
