"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.
