Each year, ASHP hosts pharmacy residents and residency preceptors in ASHP-accredited programs to visit our headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland. ASHP has created a series of webinar presentations, modeled after the live resident visits, for residents who are unable to attend the live sessions. At the end of the virtual program, viewers will be able to:
- Define the role that ASHP can play in their professional life, both on a daily basis and over the span of their career.
- Explain ASHP's involvement in selected current pharmacy issues.
- Identify one or more ways that they would like to be actively involved in ASHP activities.
- Explain the relationship between their professional goals and ASHP member benefits.
First, watch the following presentations to build your understanding of ASHP and opportunities that are available to you now (in your residency) and beyond.
- ASHP Overview (28 minutes)
