Board Certification Activities

ASHP offers a contemporary way to prepare for a Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) examination and innovative, highly rated programs for board recertification. Our approach is multifaceted, scenario-based, and interactive—the opposite of the didactic learning norm. Our board review and recertification programs will have an immediate and lasting impact on your practice.

For Review

Pharmacotherapy Specialty Review Course (Live)
December 4-5

This comprehensive two-day course provides 16 hours of CE and a robust preparatory curriculum for the high-level pharmacy professional planning to take the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) examination.

For Recertification

Pharmacotherapy Specialty Recertification Course (Live)
December 4-5

This comprehensive two-day course provides 16 hours of recertification credit through a robust curriculum for the high-level pharmacy professional seeking recertification or a refresh in therapeutics.

Intensive Studies and Clinical Sessions (Live)
December 6-8

The Intensive Studies and Clinical Sessions* packages provide 4 to 6 hours of BPS-approved recertification credit through high-level, interactive discussions on contemporary and emerging issues within each specialty. While named differently, Intensive Studies and Clinical Sessions follow the same format and are integrated throughout the Midyear meeting programming. Some sessions offer recertification credit for more than one specialty.


If you are currently enrolled in a 3-Year Recertification Plan (BCACP, BCCCP, BCGP, BCPPS, BCPS) or the Review and Recertification Reward Program (BCACP, BCCCP, BCGP, BCPPS, BCPS), the Intensive Study/Clinical Session Package is included as part of your enrollment.

Registering for a Live Intensive Studies or Clinical Sessions package does not give you access to the Live Review and Recertification Course.

To claim credit for recertification, you must purchase the package that includes the recorded sessions and recertification assessment for your specialty. Some sessions apply to multiple specialties and are eligible for multi-recertification credit. However, if you are dual- or triple-certified, you may need to purchase a package for each specialty in order to earn the maximum number of recertification credits.

*Ambulatory Care Pharmacy, Geriatric Pharmacy, and Oncology Pharmacy Clinical Sessions packages and other activities are offered jointly with the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP).
