Students Tour CVS' Encompass RX Specialty PharmacyDecember 18, 2019
Three PCOM School of Pharmacy students were chosen as interns to tour the facility
and learn about residencies and career opportunities.
On August 8, 2019, Ashley Butts (PharmD '22), Jourber Romilus (PharmD '22) and Ashley
Thompson (PharmD '22) were among twelve pharmacy students from the region chosen to
tour CVS' new acquisition: Encompass RX.
Encompass RX is a specialty pharmacy devoted to personalized clinical care. Their
providers often treat rare diseases and utilize orphan drugs. Orphan drugs are commercially
undeveloped pharmaceuticals due to the fact that they treat rare medical conditions
and have limited profitability.
"The tour was very informative," Thompson explained. "It was a great opportunity and
I would recommend interested interns to look into the company."
The handpicked student pharmacists were able to learn about CVS' various residencies,
rotation sites and career opportunities.
