The Managed Care Pharmacy Residency Experience
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Managed Care Pharmacy Residency 
program at Healthfirst is the only ASHP 
accredited Managed Care program in the 
downstate NY area and is designed to 
provide the skill set needed for success. In 
the ever-changing managed care 
environment, the pharmacist plays a key role 
in providing access to cost-effective care 
that will improve patient outcomes. After 
completing the program, residents will have 
expanded their clinical experience and 
developed a diverse set of managed care 
skills through longitudinal, core, and elective 
learning experiences. These experiences 
include Pharmacy Benefit Manager 
Oversight (PBM), Population Health & 
Quality, Medication Therapy Management, 
academia…and more!
