Pharmacotherapy Review and Recertification Course (Live)

ASHP offers a practical approach to prepare for the Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist (BCPS) exam or earn BCPS recertification credits.

This comprehensive two-day course provides a robust preparatory curriculum for the high-level pharmacy professional seeking board certification, and offers current specialists an opportunity to earn 16 hours of board recertification credit. Based on the domains, tasks, and knowledge statements developed by BPS for the examination, the course will help you prepare for the exam by identifying areas needed for in-depth review of pharmacotherapy issues by:

  • Reviewing pertinent clinical topics and practice skills.
  • Providing exam practice questions.
  • Providing access to 16 hours of CE through the Core Therapeutic Modules (review package only)
  • Providing the opportunity to earn 5 hours of BCPS recertification credit hours through the Core Therapeutic Modules for recertification (recertification package only).
  • Listing valuable resources for further self-study.

Why Choose ASHP for Your Review & Recertification Needs?

Developed by the leading continuing education provider in the country and the leading preparatory content experts and faculty, this course is different than your average review course. Our approach is multifaceted, scenario-based, and interactive—the opposite of the didactic learning norm.

How Do You Learn Best?

Our course is best suited for practitioners looking for a practical, hands-on, and scenario-based approach to learning. Course participants follow fictional patients in real-life scenarios, including initial presentation, medical history, risk factors, and complications throughout their treatments and outcomes. Participants learn as they apply various treatment options based on national standards and guidelines. Strong emphasis is placed on the thought processes needed to solve patient care problems in each therapeutic area. As patient cases are discussed, faculty members answer your questions to illustrate key concepts.
