AMCP Foundation Managed Care Research and Nonprofit Leadership Summer Internship

AMCP Foundation

Internship Overview

Interns will be placed at AMCP Foundation headquarters in Alexandria, VA (outside Washington, D.C.), to support the Foundation’s mission to expand and promote medication-related research. The Intern will learn nonprofit management principles and develop personal leadership.

“My internship was meticulously designed linking every opportunity to real-world pharmacy experience. In-depth exposure to places like Pfizer headquarters, Kaiser Permanente, or the National Pharmacy Council is nearly impossible for students. I’ve been able to jump into literature reviews for the Foundation’s Research Symposium, work with the AMCP/Foundation Joint Research Committee and review articles for the Journal of Managed Care and Specialty Pharmacy. These dream opportunities and many more were made possible by your AMCP Foundation.” Amber Reinert
