Symposia Information

Symposia are commercially-supported continuing education programs held before and after official ASHP programming at official meeting hotels and/or the convention center. NOTE: These commercially-supported educational activities, not ASHP planned educational programs. For more information on a specific program, please contact the company and/or individual published in the online listing.

All symposium requests must be approved and coordinated through ASHP. All commercially-supported symposia must be accredited for continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit. Activity organizers are responsible for providing CPE credit; ASHP does not assume this responsibility. The final deadline to submit an application for a symposium is Friday, November 18.

Midday Symposium

NOTE: Clicking the application link will take you to a login page. If you have not used the ASHP Shopping Cart, you will need to register as a new user.

Please note that food and beverages (i.e., boxed lunches) are no longer provided to attendees of the Midday Symposia funded by commercial supporters and held Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday during the Midyear meeting. This policy was established by ASHP in consideration of commercial supporters that have opted to exclude food at all continuing education activities for healthcare providers for which grant support has been provided based on their policies related to the Physician Payments Sunshine Act. In addition, the Midday Symposia have been shortened by 30 minutes to allow attendees to eat lunch after the symposia. Alternatively, attendees are free to bring their lunches to the meeting room and enjoy them during the educational activity.
