About AMCP

AMCP is a national organization that looks to support pharmacy students interested in careers in managed care pharmacy, which is the practice of developing and applying evidence‐based medication use strategies that enhance member and population health outcomes while optimizing health care resources, and areas surrounding systems-level healthcare decision-making. Through a variety of educational lectures, networking opportunities, case competitions, national conferences, longitudinal projects and more, students gain an understanding of pharmacists’ roles in these industries, the stakeholders that comprise them, key issues shaping them, and skills necessary for success in them.

P&T Competition

This is a cornerstone of our fall semester offerings, and is a longitudinal event carried out at chapters across the country. Our chapter has collaborated with GSK to put together a 5-week educational bootcamp, complete with a syllabus and associated assignments, to prepare students for the competition. Teams of 4 work together over ~2 months to assemble submission materials and present them for a chance to win our UNC local competition. The winner of the local competition is then submitted for a chance compete at the national competition. Our chapter happens to have produced the past two national champion teams!
