Pharmacotherapy Intensive Study Package for Recertification

Held annually at the Midyear Clinical Meeting, the Intensive Study package provides 6 hours of recertification credit through a high-level discussion on contemporary and emerging issues in pharmacotherapy.

These activities are approved by BPS. For pharmacists who maintain more than one certification, some of these sessions provide credit for more than one specialty. See session names and details below.

Home Study Format

The BCPS Intensive Studies will be held throughout the Midyear meeting. Any meeting registrant may view these thought-provoking and highly educational sessions. If you are board certified, you must purchase the package in order to receive the recertification assessment and claim the recertification credit. This package includes the home study sessions and the recertification assessments, available no later than Feb. 3, 2021. Any recertification credit earned will be applied in the year in which you pass the assessment.

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

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).
