Intensive Study/Clinical Sessions Packages (Live)

Held annually at the Midyear Clinical Meeting, the Intensive Study and Clinical Sessions packages provide 4 to 6 hours of recertification credit for activities approved by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS).

Each activity is presented as a high-level, interactive discussion on contemporary and emerging issues within each specialty. For pharmacists who maintain more than one certification, some of these sessions provide credit for more than one specialty. See details on individual specialties below.

Registration for an Intensive Study or Clinical Sessions package does not give you access to the Live Pharmacotherapy Review and Recertification Course.
Separate registration and fees are required.

Integrated Session Format

The Intensive Studies and Clinical Sessions will be held live throughout the Midyear meeting, and any meeting registrant may attend these thought-provoking and highly educational sessions. However, if you are board certified, you must purchase the package(s) for your specialty in order to receive the recertification assessment and claim the recertification credit.

Please note that the BCACP Clinical Sessions, BCGP Clinical Sessions, and BCOP Clinical Sessions are a repeat of the sessions presented in October 2019 at the ACCP Annual Meeting. Learners may claim credit only once. Clinical Sessions, while named differently, follow the same format as the Live Intensive Studies.

How to Participate

During the Midyear meeting registration process, add the desired recertification package (BCACP, BCCCP, BCGP, BCOP, BCPPS, BCPS).

  • Attend the live sessions at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting in Las Vegas.
  • Unable to attend all of the sessions at the Midyear meeting? The recertification package also provides online recorded access to all of the sessions in your selected specialty.
  • After the Midyear meeting, complete and pass the recertification assessments for the desired sessions. Each session provides 1 to 2 hours of credit and features immediate pass/fail notification with real-time reporting of recertification credit to BPS.
  • A range of 4 to 6 hours of credit may be earned, depending on the specialty. Clinical Sessions assessments will be available on December 18, 2019. The Intensive Studies assessments will be available online on February 5, 2020. 
  • Dual- or triple-certified? Passing a recertification assessment for a session with multiple certifications will provide you credit for each of your specialties. For example, by passing the assessment for the Ketamine activity, you earn hours toward BCCCP, BCPPS, and BCPS. Sessions with multiple certifications are outlined below.
