HISTORY:  AKPhA’s Affiliation with the American Society of Health System Pharmacists

AKPhA is pleased to announce the formation of the new Health-System Pharmacy Academy and the recent affiliation with American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. This initiative was started last year in response to requests of several AKPhA health-systems members. It has been an extensive process supported by the AKPhA Board and ASHP.  Academies are component groups established by the Board of Directors, comprised of AKPhA members who share a similar practice interest. The purpose of academies is to provide services and represent members within these groups. The Health-Systems Academy is in the early development stages. Over the next several months, we will be working with ASHP and other state affiliates to lay the initial ground work for the development of the Academy.

Members register/renewing as a Health-System Pharmacist, Technician, Associate or Student, are automatically enrolled in the Academy.
