AMCP Nexus 2023 is the Place to Be for Student Pharmacists!
AMCP welcomes student pharmacists to experience the many educational, networking, and career-building facets of Nexus 2023. Here are five programs developed specifically for our student pharmacists and those who guide them.
SP1: Student Session | Practice Based Research: What, Why, and How?
Tuesday, Oct. 17 | 8:30–9:45am
Practice-based research is essential to assessing the impact of direct patient care services provided by managed care pharmacy on patient outcomes. Students, junior researchers, and practitioners often lack the necessary knowledge to conduct practice-based research, as highlighted by a recent survey of AMCP Foundation interns, where only 35% felt comfortable with real-world evidence methodologies. Understanding practice-based research concepts and methodologies enables the execution, dissemination, and utilization of research that aligns with the managed care pharmacy research agenda.
This session will provide a 25-minute didactic presentation on practice-based research concepts and methodologies followed by breakout groups to walk through conducting research with real-world examples. This session will help bridge the gap in knowledge and training among students, junior researchers, and practitioners improving their understanding of practice-based research concepts and methodologies

Tuesday, Oct. 17 | 6–7:30pm
Student pharmacists and new practitioners are invited to network with established managed care pharmacists who will share advice, career opportunities, and life experiences.
