Purdue University program
For several years, DKP has had an agreement with the Purdue University School of Pharmacy to serve as an advanced practice service-based rotation site, for students interested in learning about pharmacy opportunities outside of traditional clinical or industry experience.
During the 4 week rotation, students have an opportunity to work with our expert reimbursement consultants as they help biopharmaceutical and medical device clients navigate the complex healthcare environment and optimize the position of healthcare products and services to achieve appropriate patient access to care. DKP’s focus lies mainly in support of oncology products, but we also support allergy/immunology, anesthesiology, cardiology, diabetes, nephrology, orthopedic surgery, radiology, urology, and vascular surgery products. We combine our expert knowledge of the healthcare industry with our substantive experience in reimbursement planning, payer relationships, product marketing, and sales management to develop customized market positioning strategies for our clients and a rotation experience students will be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
Butler University program
DKP has also developed a partnership with Butler University to provide internships through the university’s experiential learning program.
This internship is an Advanced Practice Non-Patient Care (consulting) rotation, available in 4- or 8-week rotations. Students selecting this rotation should have an interest in learning more about the variables affecting insurance coverage, coding, and payment for drugs and biologics, and be prepared to complete project work in one of these areas to be presented to the company at the completion of their rotation.
