AMCP Foundation Internship Addressing Health Equity
This immersive internship develops future leaders in health care by training student pharmacists to study and support disparate and vulnerable populations. Interns are exposed to concepts such as social determinants of health (SDOH), chronic disease management, access to care, and vaccination trends/outcomes with a focus on addressing health equity. Working with health care practitioners and professionals at a health plan or similar organization, interns implement managed care principles to maximize health care resources and patient outcomes.
- Each intern is assigned a pharmacist preceptor at a managed care organization
- Interns will also be supported by additional mentors, including virtual preceptors from AMCP and AMCP Foundation volunteer leadership, as well as the biopharmaceutical industry.
- Interns conceptualize, conduct, interpret and present a capstone research project at AMCP Nexus.
- This program is virtual.
This internship reflects our strategic priority to leverage managed care pharmacy to address disparities in medication access, use, and outcomes – a mutual goal held by AMCP and AMCP Foundation.
