UWSOP’s student team Iris To, Nina Kim, Derek Louie, and Andrew Nguyen (third year PharmD students) came in second at the national Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) Pharmacy & Therapeutics Competition. Competition is keen with 60 teams participating nationwide. Teams must review drugs for their hypothetical patients and create a dossier that looks at clinical trials, safety, and how the drug fits into therapy. Students research safety and perform an economic analysis for the patient’s benefit. UWSOP has had a finalist team most years over the past 12 years. Congratulations to Iris, Nina, Derek, and Andrew!
