National P&T Competition Judges
Would you like to help groom the next generation of managed care leaders? Consider serving as a judge for the AMCP Foundation National Student Pharmacist P&T Competition!
Starting in 2022, the P&T Competition is conducted in three phases. We welcome your application to serve as a judge for the initial Entry Phase round. In this round, all participating teams submit a formulary drug monograph with supporting materials. Teams will be evaluated on their ability to gather, review, critically appraise, and synthesize the evidence for the safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness of the study drug.
Entry Phase judging for the 2023 P&T Competition will take place from January 27 to February 10
- Judges will be assigned up to 10 drug monographs to review and score.
- Judges will be able to access their assigned entries beginning Friday, January 27.
- Team entries will be accessed and scored via a dedicated online platform, with documents available in digital formats only. You will be able to download and print documents for your convenience during the judging process.
- Scores for all monographs must be submitted by Friday, February 10.
- Estimated time commitment: minimum 10-12 hours.
Judges are asked to:
- Commit to meeting the stated judging timeline and deadline. This is critical. Please do not volunteer if you have any conflicts with the specific timeframe mentioned above.
- Review the P&T Competition “Case Study and Team Assignments” document thoroughly.
- Become familiar with the competition drug, therapeutic area, and manufacturer dossier.
- Score the drug monographs in the dedicated online platform using criteria and rubrics provided by AMCP Foundation.
- Remain objective towards team submissions, without bias toward any particular team.
We look for judges who:
- Are—or were—employed by a managed care organization. (IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to confidentiality considerations regarding the study drug dossier, we unfortunately are unable to accept judges who are employed by biopharmaceutical companies.)
- Are familiar with drug monograph development, formulary management, and P&T Committee review at health plans and/or PBMs.
- Understand best practices for identifying and evaluating the evidence that informs drug monograph development.
- Have experience with economic models.
