Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Specialty Review Course and Recertification Programs

Ambulatory Review Course

Offered by ASHP and the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), this two-day review course is based on the domains, tasks, and knowledge statements outlined by BPSExternal Link[PDF] for the examination and provides a robust preparatory curriculum for the ambulatory care pharmacy professional preparing for the examination. In addition, the organizations offer a complete recertification program for those that are board certified as an Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Practitioner (BCACP).  The review course and components of the recertification program are offered live and online for your convenience. A full schedule of credit hours offered each year to meet recertification requirements has been developed through 2018 to assist BCACPs in planning their recertification cycle.  Planned by the ASHP Sections of Clinical Specialists and Scientists and Ambulatory Care Practitioners.
