Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy – Student Chapter (AMCP)

The AMCP student chapter at UB was formed in 2011 to facilitate the education, development, and promotion of the principles and practices of managed care pharmacy.  There are over 18,000 pharmacists working for health plans and pharmacy benefit management companies.  It’s their responsibility to make sure that the plan they design provides individual patients with appropriate drugs and drug therapies, conveniently and cost-effectively.  It’s a complex job, involving the expert skills of clinically trained pharmacists at every step in the patient-care process.  As with pharmacists who practice in other settings, pharmacists in managed care environments are committed to ensuring that medications are used appropriately to improve patient’s health. When you join, AMCP will help you navigate the world of managed care pharmacy, build a professional network, and explore career paths!
