School of Pharmacy

The Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) hosted the fifth Annual Managed Care Pharmacy Roundtable on Monday, October 29, at the Millberry Union Golden Gate and City Lights Room.

Pharmacy students had the opportunity to meet with representatives of pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies. Students said they learned how these pharmacists made their decisions to work in managed care companies and also learned about the job opportunities and responsibilities.  

Following the networking event, participants were treated to a wonderful dinner sponsored by Novartis.

Some of the companies participating included Salix Pharmaceuticals, Blue Shield of California, Novartis, Health Net, Amgen, Hill Physicians Medical Group, Kaiser Permanente, Roche and Genentech.

Roundtable events are great opportunities for students to interact with pharmacists from different backgrounds, learn about managed care pharmacies and open new doors in their careers.
