Core Therapeutic Modules

ASHP has developed Core Therapeutic Modules (CTM), a collection of on-demand, web-based activities, to help practitioners prepare for a Board of Pharmacy Specialty (BPS) examination.  The CTM activities are designed as a library of modules to customize your own self study program and serves as a foundation to help fill knowledge gaps in various topics or disease states.  These modules should be used in addition to participating in an ASHP specialty examination review course to further enhance your studies. Planned by the ASHP Section of Clinical Specialists & Scientists.

Led by therapeutic experts in the field, the modules range from 1 to 2 hours in length and can be completed consecutively or individually in any order. New modules will be continuously added to the CTM program. The online format offers the convenience to study at your own pace
