The Paul G. Cano Legislative Internship for Pharmacy Students
Do you know how future developments in Medicare, Medicaid, controlled substance regulation, and other federal and state health care laws and policies will affect your pharmacy practice? Want to educate policymakers and help pharmacists make their voices heard on Capitol Hill and in regulatory agencies?
With new federal and state legislation and regulations governing every aspect of pharmacy practice, it is more critical than ever for pharmacists to stay informed of policy developments in Washington, DC, and around the country. In memory of Paul G. Cano, ASCP’s former Director of Government Affairs, ASCP has maintained a legislative internship position since 1993. This internship offers pharmacy students experience and training in legislative and regulatory advocacy on a federal level, and a chance to see first-hand how politics shape pharmacists’ practice across the nation. Job duties and opportunities include:
Attending congressional hearings
The 2017 internship term will run for eight weeks, from early June through early August, with flexible start and end dates. The candidate we select will receive a stipend for this internship (more information will be provided during the interview process).
