AMCP Foundation Annual Pharmacy & Therapeutics Competition

Pharmacy and Therapeutics Poster Competition Students 


The 2017 P&T Competition attracted 60 AMCP Student Pharmacist Chapters nationwide. Four-member teams worked through a case study involving a drug product dossier (based on the AMCP Format for Formulary Submissions) and presented their recommendations for formulary placement to a panel of judges representing a P&T committee. 

“AMCP and the AMCP Foundation are committed to cultivating the next generation of managed care pharmacy leaders,” said Susan A. Cantrell, RPh, CAE, AMCP Chief Executive Officer and Chair of the AMCP Foundation Board of Trustees. "Based on the quality of the work in this year's P&T competition, I'm confident that our profession is in good hands."

Awards were presented March 30 at the AMCP Foundation Awards Ceremony during the AMCP Managed Care & Specialty Pharmacy Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado.

Locally and nationally, the Competition is intended to give students an opportunity to hone critical analysis, presentation and research skills. More importantly, the Competition allows students to view different styles and processes that can be used in effective formulary management. It also provides exposure to, and a working knowledge of AMCP's Format for Formulary Submissions. Students learn to develop and manage a formulary system through evaluating literature, conducting comparative studies, and making real-life decisions based on cost-benefit analysis.

Each of the eight AMCP Student Chapter teams selected as finalists in the National P&T Competition will receive $4,000.00. 

Each of the three winning teams will receive honoraria with the intention of supporting academic pursuits of student pharmacists (may vary by year): 


First place team - $4,000 

Second place team - $3,000 

Third place team - $2,000
