“We feel a great sense of responsibility to help mentor and train the next generation of managed care pharmacists, and we are honored to have our residency program recognized for clinical and teaching excellence.”

LISA HAW, PHARM.D. MEDIMPACT RESIDENCY PROGRAM DIRECTOR

"This accreditation attests to the quality of MedImpact’s clinical services and the dedication of the program’s preceptors to provide new practitioners with the specialized knowledge and skills required to be successful in this rapidly changing industry,” continued Haw.

MedImpact’s Managed Care Pharmacy Residency Program is designed to provide future managed care leaders advanced training and mentorship from some of the industry’s most experienced and accomplished practitioners. The highly competitive program provides postgraduate training in clinical analytics, formulary and medication use management, health outcomes research, and other core managed care disciplines.
