Eleven members of the AMCP University of Minnesota student chapter traveled to Chicago over their fall break for the third year in a row to visit two companies. This year, they had the opportunity to check out CVS Health and Precision for Value.

At CVS Health, students were able to learn about the company from a managed care perspective, pharmacists’ roles, and residency opportunities. Students were also able to see their mail order facility and learn how prescriptions were prepared in mass quantities with virtually zero errors.

At Precision for Value, students were able to learn about the operations of a managed markets agency that provides consulting services to manufacturing companies. This was a new and unique opportunity students typically aren’t exposed to.

Overall, the trip provided an amazing opportunity for the AMCP-UMN Student Chapter to bond and learn about managed care together.
