Keep pace with a field that is changing more quickly than ever. Practice at the top of your license.

The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.

We offer pharmacists a wide-array of training opportunities for continuing professional development including online and live training sessions to meet the diverse needs of today’s practitioners. Our programs offer real-world experiences that foster best-practice models of pharmacist-provided care with business and industry leaders and advance the pharmacy profession, both locally and globally.

By partnering with internal and external university partners, we are able to drive practice transformation and improve patient care. Our trainings give pharmacists the tools to help educate the public about the value and role of the pharmacist as part of the health care team.

Our programs are based on practice-based research and constantly evolving to keep pace with the most current trends and the growing role of pharmacists.
