Charging the Hill: A Student

1 person recommends this.

When I achieved BCPS I started dreading completely the re-certification credit. At that point in time the only option available to complete the credit was the Pharmacotherapy Self-Assessment Program. I dreaded completing them from day one, but also dreaded the thoughts of ever having to retake the examination. Then ASHP created a way for pharmacists to have options in completing the required credit. There are now different ways that I can consider when deciding how to finish my requirements. This excites me. Call me a nerd, but having options makes me jump for joy! ASHP offers two different types of re-certification credit. The literature study module and then the intensive re-certification class. I truly can not wait to get started in these options and share my journey along with you all!

Student Rotations in Pharmacy Informatics

Some time last Fall, nestled between my busy Cardiac ICU and Emergency Dept learning experiences I managed to squeeze in some time to take a BPS exam in pharmacotherapy.  It was a blur, and I had a lot of responsibilities to occupy my time and not stress about whether I passed, etc.  I was fortunate to receive a random email in mid-November informing me to check out the testing administration website.  So yea, BCPS certified!!!

Hi!

I'm super excited to participate in the BCPS ambassador program!  I'm more than a little intimidated to start blogging, but it's a small price to pay for the opportunity.  I get to use ASHP's pharmacotherapy recertification materials in exchange for sharing my experience with them over the next 12 months. When I was starting the second half of the BCPS exam, I was thinking "I NEVER want to take this test again!" I'm glad I passed and I'm glad ASHP has given me this opportunity.

If you had asked me a year ago when I was prepping for P4 rotations if I thought I would have to go through the Scramble, I probably would have laughed in your face. I have known I wanted to do residency since the beginning of my pharmacy school career. I did everything I needed to do to prepare for getting a residency position, and not even because I thought I had to, but because I enjoyed doing it all. I built up my leadership skills by holding positions on a local, state, and national level, I presented numerous posters at conferences, I volunteered in the little amount of free time that I had, I worked every other weekend as an intern, and I even selected a hard P4 rotation schedule. My CV was 5 pages long, I thought my letters of intent were great, I thought I nailed my interviews, and I ranked 6 programs overall. I thought I was set.

Hello ASHP members!

First, I would like to start by saying how honored I am to have been named one of the twelve recipients of the 2014-2015 ASHP Student Leadership Award. I have been asked to share the essay that I wrote for increasing PPMI awareness, from a student's perspective. This is also my first time posting a blog so I encourage any comments or feedback!

As you may have seen perusing the blogs recently, there are several of us that have been selected as BCPS Ambassadors for the New Practitioner's Forum. Now normally I do not usually have trouble finding what I want to say, but I am new to this whole blogging... experience and have had a bit of writer's block in trying to find the best way to introduce myself. Well... here goes nothing.

Hello all,

Like many of the other new bloggers you've probably seen, I will be documenting my experience with ASHP's online intensive study modules as an ASHP Pharmacotherapy Ambassador. First, I'll give you a brief background on where I'm coming from. I graduated pharmacy school in 2011, completed a PGY1 residency and was fortunate enough to be hired on at the hospital where I did my residency. I completed the ASHP Patient Care Impact Program in 2013 which involved expanding our services in the emergency department. I serve as a residency preceptor in our ED. I also just took the BCPS exam last fall so this will obviously be my first experience with recertification. On a more personal note, I am training for my first (and last?) half iron man coming up in May, and my wife and I are expecting our first child in August.

Good-bye Winter, Hello Spring! 

2 people recommend this.


I have been working in the hospital setting for the past 17 years and like to think that I had some level of understanding of health care economics and the current state of our health care system. I knew that there was a shortage of primary care physicians and that we generally do a lousy job in preventive care relative to other developed countries. I knew that we have the most expensive health care in the world and that our outcomes are not proportionate to our dollars spent. I knew that reimbursement dollars were being slashed by government payors, that the 340b drug discount program was being threatened, and that the runaway freight train of specialty pharmacy expense (with prices pulled out of a hat) was likely unsustainable.
