An Exceptional Experience

Navitus Residency Program Director is Marnie Wickizer, who was the winner of the 2018 AMCP Inaugural Award for Managed Care Pharmacy Residency/Preceptor. This award recognizes Wickizer for her successful work as residency director, residency preceptor, student preceptor, clinical instructor, chapter advisor, peer reviewer, mentor, and volunteer. 
Julie Olson, Vice President, Clinical Account Management & Innovation, praised Wickizer’s work, saying, “The Navitus Residency Program has been very effective at producing knowledgeable and driven pharmacy leaders, and we see the program continuing to be innovative and highly impactful within the managed care space.” 

Along with Wickizer, residents will have access to multi-disciplinary pharmacists, residency preceptors, nurses, certified pharmacy technicians, and other clinicians. Our collaborative approach provides an exceptional experience that is reflected in the experiences of past residents.


The Perspective of Past Residents

  • The Navitus residency was an amazing experience. It is incredible to think about how much I learned about managed care and specialty pharmacy over the course of one year. Marnie (RPD) and Agata (program coordinator) provided amazing support, ensuring we were happy and successful throughout the year. All of our preceptors were knowledgeable, approachable and supportive. During our rotations, we were treated as valued members of the team and given meaningful projects to work on that deepened our knowledge of managed care. I only have great things to say about the Navitus residency!

The array of projects, both individual and team-based, have meaningful impacts on Navitus and the members it serves. Preceptors provide a level of support that is simply unmatched, and which cultivates an optimal learning environment for residents. There is an excellent balance of direction and autonomy, which fosters continuous personal and professional development, and provides ample opportunity to maximize one's potential.

  • The Managed Care Residency Program at Navitus is the best way to establish a clinical foundation in a managed care setting. The program focuses on the development of the individual through a comprehensive, team-based approach to learning while providing residents with exposure to all clinical aspects and services of a PBM. Residents are involved with a number of opportunities that cultivate growing leaders. The residency program really increased my understanding of this non-traditional pharmacy setting, and helped me to create a network of resources throughout our company. I would highly recommend this program.

I have learned so much through the different rotations offered. It also allowed me to be involved in patient care through the unique staffing opportunities. All during residency, I received a lot of support and mentorship, and even after as I continue my career with Navitus. This was one of the best decisions I made.

  • During my 4th year rotations I still did not know what pharmacy avenue I wanted to go down, but after a day visiting at Navitus, I knew it was where I wanted to be. From the genuine smiles meeting me at the door to the unique business model of complete transparency, I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of. The residency program was instrumental in my transformation from fresh graduate to seasoned clinician, integral to providing value and service to Navitus’ clients. All pharmacy graduates, not just those who have already decided on managed care, can succeed and have succeeded in this program because of the top-level internal support and the immersive experience that the Navitus Managed Care Residency provides.
