Becoming Involved in ASHP

“I became involved with ASHP as a pharmacy student because they offered practical resources to help me prepare for residency.”

Advice for Someone New to Specialty Area

“Use organizations like ASHP to build a network of pharmacists in your specialty area so you have colleagues with whom you can collaborate! Become familiar with literature in your specialty area. I have been successful in developing clinical practices because I keep up to date on literature related to ambulatory care practice development and evaluation. We can learn so much by reviewing the literature!”

Value of ASHP

"ASHP can be a professional home for pharmacists from a variety of backgrounds. With a focus on health systems, ASHP designs programming to promote collaboration among pharmacists who practice across the continuum of care. ASHP represents pharmacists with interests ranging from home infusion to informatics yet they are organized and focused on a singular vision--to optimize health of patients across the care continuum."

"In addition to providing networking and programming opportunities for individual members, ASHP is serving the profession as whole. They are focused on advocacy efforts to advance the profession, and they lead efforts to train the next generation of pharmacists through residency accreditation and preceptor development."
