ASHP and APhA offer pharmacists a way to better prepare for the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Specialty Certification Examination.

This two-day course provides a robust preparatory curriculum for the high-level pharmacy professional who is planning to take the examination, seeking recertification, or desiring a refresh in therapeutics. 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 ambulatory care pharmacy issues by:

  • Reviewing pertinent clinical topics and practice skills
  • Providing exam practice questions
  • Listing valuable resources for further self-study

Why choose ASHP/APhA for your prep and recertification needs?
Developed by the leading continuing pharmacy 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—opposite from the didactic learning norm.  Attendees are engaged while learning which provides a meaningful and lasting impact on their practice.

The question is simple: How do you learn best? 
Our course is best suited for practitioners who are looking for a practical, hands-on and real-life approach to learning.

Our review course participants follow "patients" in real-life scenarios from 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 are there to present the best answer to questions that illustrate key concepts.

Prepare for the BPS Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Specialty Certification Examination with this cutting-edge educational program. Highlights of the ASHP/APhA review course include:

  • An interesting, application-based approach using complex, case-based, and interactive learning for high level practitioners and specialists.
  • Practice models, policy, and public health issue topics which account for 20% of the BCACP exam.
  • Educational materials that can be downloaded and printed in advance, as well as a practice test containing 100+ practice questions with explained answers and links to original references.
  • Exam preparation in only two days, saving you time away from work and home, and drastically reducing travel expenses.
