AMCP Foundation/Pfizer, Inc. Managed Care Summer Internship Program
Pfizer, Inc., in partnership with the AMCP Foundation, will support the AMCP Foundation/Pfizer, Inc. Managed Care Pharmacy Summer Internship Program. Its goal is to develop future leaders in managed health care through activities that expose interns to population health and the application of managed care pharmacy principles in formulary management, benefit design, medication therapy management and adherence management.

Four student pharmacists will be selected for the internship through a nationwide selection process.
