The Congressional Healthcare Policy Fellow Program, a collaborative effort of the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Pharmacy, the American College of Clinical Pharmacy and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, prepares pharmacists for public service.

This 14-month immersive program features unique health-policy learning experiences in Congress and the government affairs offices of ACCP and ASHP. During the program, fellows contribute to the effective use of scientific, therapeutic and pharmaceutical knowledge in pro­fessional organization and government policy decision-making.

The fellow is actively mentored while gaining experience in issue prioritization, policy analysis, legislative evaluation and policy development, current affairs research, effective writing, and advocacy program development and implementation skills. The integration of these skills becomes the foundation for a future focused on practical policy development and evaluation.
