Continuing Professional Development

Continuing education in health care is more than a licensing requirement, it is an opportunity to expand your professional horizons, stay up-to-date with developments in your field, and network in new ways with your peers.

Continuing Pharmacy Education works with healthcare providers to create educational activities targeted to address gaps in knowledge, skills, strategies and performance. We leverage the expertise of faculty within the College of Pharmacy, other schools within the AHC and health-related organizations.
