"We were proud to offer these talented young pharmacists the chance to work for a summer within a leading U.S. biopharmaceutical manufacturer," says Paula J. Eichenbrenner, CAE, Executive Director of the AMCP Foundation. "The real-world training made possible by Allergan equipped our 2017 interns for future professional practice. These students now join the 160-plus alumni who have participated in our internships over the years."

Now in its 10th year, the highly competitive AMCP Foundation/Allergan Plc Specialized Summer Internship in Health Outcomes is designed to stimulate student pharmacists' career interests in health outcomes and pharmacoeconomics through exposure to research, measurement and applications of evidence-based decision-making. Both interns were placed at Allergan in Irvine, CA in the Global Health Economics and Outcomes Research (GHEOR) department.  

In addition to the rigorous onsite experience at Allergan, the interns learned about AMCP and the Foundation via "virtual" preceptors and a one-week rotation at AMCP/Foundation headquarters in Alexandria, Va.
