Xcenda APPE Rotation Application 2022-2023

Thank you for applying to Xcenda’s Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) program. Xcenda is proud to offer a unique APPE program to prospective PharmD candidates, holding strong to our belief of contributing to the future of healthcare and to the future professionals in our industry. At Xcenda, PharmD candidates will have the opportunity to leverage the knowledge of highly accomplished industry experts while gaining hands-on experience as a contributing member to a wide array of projects across multiple pharmaceutical companies, therapies, and disease states.

This practice experience is designed to provide PharmD candidates with a basic understanding of the clinical, economic, and humanistic outcomes of healthcare interventions. Didactic and practical experience in these core areas will expose the student to a variety of competencies utilized in a health outcomes research and market access consulting firm.

  • Medical Communications: Dossiers, posters, manuscripts, medical slide decks, targeted literature searches
  • New Business Development: Proposal writing, market trends and pipeline product assessments, company/disease/product overview presentations
