pharmacist meeting with patient

Continuing Professional Development


Our continuing professional development programs offer real-world experiences that foster best-practice models of pharmacist-provided care  and advance the pharmacy profession, both locally and globally.

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. 

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. 


The Office of Continuing Professional Development seeks to strategically drive pharmacy practice innovation and transformation through multifaceted practice development and practitioner training to enhance patient care. 



We look to be a leading expert in creating progressive pharmacy practices and advancing the pharmacy profession for practicing pharmacists, pharmacy residents, pharmacy technicians and Ohio State alumni in Ohio and across the nation.
