Why should I log in to ASHP.org?
Being a member of ASHP is now even more valuable. By logging in to the website as an ASHP member, you gain access to all of the site’s content, including regulatory updates or guidelines and tools for managing drug shortages. In addition to the website’s member-only information, membership in ASHP provides you access to member-only webinars, discounts on products and services, and other resources.

Once you’re logged in, we encourage you to personalize ASHP.org by creating your My ASHP profile.
Why is my bookmark to an ASHP web page no longer an active link?
If you click a bookmark you’ve saved and get a “Page Not Found” message, either the content on that page has expired or the URL of that web page has changed with the launch of ASHP’s new website. When ASHP launched its new website, we created a new structure for naming pages (URLs). The current naming structure reflects website best practices and establishes more search-friendly URLs for all pages on ASHP.org.
How do I personalize ASHP.org to reflect my interests?
Personalization is a key feature of the new website. My ASHP is an individualized dashboard that allows ASHP members to customize their experience based on their needs and interests.
To begin customizing your ASHP website, click LOG IN on the main navigation bar at the top of the page just to the right of the ASHP logo. Once you’ve logged in, you can access My ASHP by scrolling down to the My ASHP box on the right side of the page and clicking the GO TO DASHBOARD button. You can also access My ASHP by clicking My ASHP in the Main Menu.
On the My ASHP page, you can update your Account Information, add ASHP Connect Communities in the My Communities box, and select your ASHP FAVORITE PAGES for easy future access. There are two ways to mark a web page as a favorite so you can access it easily every time you visit ASHP.org:
- If you are logged in and viewing a web page that you’d like to save as a favorite, simply click Add to Favorites below the MENU bar.
- On your My ASHP page, under FAVORITE PAGES, click SELECT SITE under ASHP Related Sites. A short list of ASHP websites will appear in a drop-down list. To add one of these sites to your FAVORITE PAGES, simply click on it in the drop-down list.
With either method for adding favorites, an alert box will appear to confirm the addition of the web page to your FAVORITE PAGES on your member dashboard.
