Call for Proposals - AMCP Nexus 2016


 AMCP Nexus Carousel 

  Deadline for Proposal Submission is 11:59 PM PT Sunday, May 1, 2016

The Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) invites proposals for continuing pharmacy education (CPE) sessions to be presented at AMCP Nexus 2016, which will be held October 3-6, 2016, at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.   

AMCP Nexus is expected to attract approximately 2,500 managed care pharmacists and other health care professionals seeking to increase their knowledge of the management and coordination of clinical, pharmacy benefit, and pharmacy care programs.   These managed care professionals are interested in health care information and issues viewed from a population perspective, rather than at the patient–practitioner level.  

AMCP welcomes proposals for complete 90-minute CPE sessions.  Proposed content should be appropriate for the specified education track.  Proposals submitted outside of these topic areas will not be considered for inclusion.
