AMCP Foundation/Pfizer, Inc. Summer Internship Program

Applications for 2019 are closed.    

Pfizer, Inc., in partnership with the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy 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.  

Working directly with pharmacists and other members of the health care team, interns will gain an appreciation of how managed care pharmacy principles seek to maximize health care resources and patient care outcomes. Four student pharmacists will be selected for the internship through a nationwide selection process. 

 

Internship Details 

During the 10-week program each intern will be assigned to a health plan, pharmacy benefit management company and employer site. This immersive experience will round out their introduction to the managed care pharmacy profession and help them develop career plan. In addition, interns will be matched with virtual preceptors and present capstone research projects at AMCP Nexus 2019.

Interns may also spend time at Pfizer headquarters in New York. 

The program will cover housing, travel and other approved expenses. Interns will also receive a modest stipend.
