Summer Intern Perspectives: Cassidy Slater, AMCP Foundation/Pfizer, Inc. Oncology Intern
Published October 2022
This summer, I was selected to be an AMCP Foundation/Pfizer Inc. Oncology Summer Intern. Over the 10-week program, I had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people from AMCP Foundation, Pfizer, the Biologics and Biosimilars Collective Intelligence Consortium (BBCIC), and CVS Health. I worked on a research project with Dr. Cate Lockhart, the executive director of BBCIC, and will present our findings at AMCP Nexus 2022.
In addition to my capstone research project, I had the opportunity to engage in weekly virtual presentations from the intern cohort and weekly journal club presentations with AMCP Foundation. I attended various educational sessions hosted by Pfizer and learned about the many roles pharmacists have in the industry.
I want to give a special thanks to everyone who supported me this past summer, including Dr. Cate Lockhart, Dr. Pranav Patel, Dr. Vila Shetty, Dr. Kayla Friend, Dr. John White, and Ebony Clay. I also want to thank the AMCP Foundation for allowing me to have this experience, as I know what I learned from this internship will greatly advance my career!
