AMCP Graduation Cords

To acknowledge and reward the exceptional leaders within our Student Chapters, AMCP will now be offering active student members AMCP Graduation Cords!

Starting with the Class of 2019, we will ask that either the Chapter Advisor, Diplomat, or Chapter President collect the graduation cords from the AMCP Managed Care & Specialty Pharmacy Annual Meeting. The 2019 meeting will be held in sunny San Diego from March 25-28. If a representative from your chapter is unable to attend the Annual Meeting, we will mail out the cords after the meeting, towards the end of April.  

AMCP has set the criteria below to determine who will be eligible to receive an AMCP graduation cord. Chapter advisors and/or Diplomats will be responsible for determining which student members meet the criteria and submitting the order to AMCP. Submissions will be due by March 1, 2019 to ensure delivery prior to graduation.
