Intensive Study/Clinical Sessions Packages

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 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.

Home Study Format

Any meeting registrant may view these thought-provoking and highly educational sessions. If you are board certified, you must purchase the packages for your specialties 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 at the ACCP Annual Meeting. Learners may claim credit only once.

How to purchase a recertification package:

  • During the Midyear meeting registration process, add the desired recertification package (BCACP, BCCCP, BCGP, BCOP, BCPPS, BCPS).
  • 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. Clinical Sessions assessments will be available on Dec. 16, 2020 and Intensive Studies assessments will be available on Feb. 3, 2021.
  • A range of 4 to 6 hours of credit may be earned, depending on the specialty.
  • Dual- or triple-certified? Passing a recertification assessment for a session with multiple certifications will provide you credit for each of your specialties.


You must be a full-time Midyear meeting registrant to purchase the Intensive Studies or Clinical Sessions packages at the reduced rate. The price for 4 to 6 hours of recertification credit for the  Intensive Studies and Clinical Sessions packages is $50 per specialty for Midyear Clinical Meeting registrants. This includes the home study sessions and the recertification assessments. The special meeting price expires on Dec.10, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.(ET).

Clinical Sessions and Intensive Studies packages will be available for non-Midyear meeting registrants to purchase at the regular list price.

If you are currently enrolled in a 1-Year Recertification Plan, 3-Year Recertification Plan, or the Review and Recertification Reward Program (RRRP), the Intensive Studies or Clinical Sessions package is included as part of your enrollment.
