Interprofessional Continuing Education

About Us

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. Our team of instructional designers, technologists, project managers, and other dedicated professionals provide a one-stop shop. We are more than accreditation services; our goal is to educate the healthcare team to improve patient outcomes.
