Addressing the Pharmacist Shortage: Medco Labor Coalition(TM) Launches National Scholarship Program to Support the Development of the Next Generation of Pharmacists
Date:2/13/2008

ist has moved beyond the corner druggist to exciting careers that touch engineering, genetics, manufacturing, drug development, public policy and clinical specialization. For its part, Medco has instituted a number of initiatives to drive improvement in pharmacy care in America. Most recently, Medco became the only pharmacy in the United States to offer care from more than 800 specialist pharmacists trained in one of eight chronic disease categories. Medco is driving the future application of technologies such as personalized medicine through research partnerships with the Mayo Clinic and LabCorp; automated dispensing to improve dispensing accuracy as illustrated in its two automated pharmacies; and electronic prescribing through innovative efforts like the Southeast Michigan e-Prescribing Initiative (SEMI). The company also provides scholarship grants to 19 schools of pharmacy in the United States to foster learning and expand pharmacy training.

"This is an exciting time to consider a career in pharmacy, because there are so many ways that one can make an impact on millions of Americans," said Medco Chief Pharmacist Roger Anderson, Dr.P.H. "We are leading the emergence of many of the most exciting advances in pharmacy care, and we're excited to be able to provide opportunities to those students who want to make a difference."

The Medco Labor Coalition Scholarship is based on a combination of academic achievement, commitment to a career in pharmacy, leadership and community service. The number of recipients and the amount of the scholarship to each student will be decided on an annual basis by Medco. Awardees will be chosen on an annual basis by an independent scholarship service retained by Medco to administer the program. Scholarship eligibility is exclusively for biological and legally adopted children of members of union clients in the Medco Labor Coalition.

The competitive selection process will give consideration to the respective ability,
