The Apexus Compass

A Month at Apexus as an Administrative Resident

Chelsea Magee, PharmD
PGY2 Health Systems Pharmacy Administration Resident
Penobscot Community Health Care, Bangor ME

A few months into my PGY1 residency, I accompanied my chief pharmacy officer to 340B University, where she was a faculty member. Prior to my residency, I had zero experience with the 340B Program and was so overwhelmed by the wealth of information I soaked in at the University that I felt as if I had been hit by a train. As my PGY1 year progressed, I become much more involved in the operation of our entity’s 340B program and attended 340B University for a second time. I was excited to find myself much more knowledgeable the second time around, and was actually relatively comfortable with material for different types of entities. I continued my 340B journey by learning everything I could about the regulations and operations of different entity types and by applying for an Apexus rotation in the spring of my PGY2 year.

At Apexus, I wanted to be exposed to as much as possible so my 340B skill set didn’t stop at the operation of our FQHC. I was rapidly able to get involved in discussions around the Track and Trace program and its impact on entities, Medicaid database survey discussions, aiding in the development of new presentation materials for 340B University, and the planning of the new specialty pharmacy solution. I was also able to spend time in the call center and really put my 340B knowledge to the test answering e-mails. I was happy to find that I had a strong understanding of the program, but was also able to learn new intricate details through questions asked. All these components were elements that I would only have understood a tiny sliver of without the time I have been able to spend here.

The Apexus rotation also afforded me a much better understanding of the connections and behind-the-scenes processes the Prime Vendor Program has to carry out with manufacturers, wholesalers, and HRSA to ensure that the services they deliver are of the highest caliber.

I felt so welcomed here and could not be more appreciative for the opportunity to further develop my understanding of the 340B Program. I look forward to returning to my entity and looking for ways to improve our current processes with my enhanced knowledge of the program. I highly recommend this experience to all administrative residents looking to strengthen their knowledge of the program and broaden their horizons beyond their own entity.
