Congratulations to Emilyn Chee, Mallory Cruz, Mir Hosseini, Nicole Lu, Yim Suwanphattana and Leonard Valdez for passing the exam for Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist!! BCPS certification is a voluntary process by which a pharmacist's education, experience, knowledge and skills in a particular practice area are confirmed as well beyond what is required for licensure. That ought to make all of us proud!
The Board of Pharmacy Specialties functions across the pharmacy profession to provide specialty certification of pharmacists. It documents practitioners' readiness for expanding their roles in the 21st century, and it recognizes, sets standards for, and provides certification in specific clinical specialties.
We are proud of all of our pharmacists that have voluntarily taken the BCPS exam by the Board of Pharmacy Specialties. Current Community Regional pharmacists who have BCPS certification are: Staci Anderson, Harlan Husted, George Lien, Linda Ly, Marisa Mendez, Gillian Pineda, Melissa Reger, Alice Robbins, Amy Royston, and Bee Thao.
The distinction between certification and certificate training is palpable. Some certificates may indicate participation in a targeted educational program but does not assess a practitioner's competence. Community Regional is proud to have six more employees with their specialized certifications from the Board of Pharmacy Specialties.
Currently, there are six recognized specialty practice areas, with two more pending in critical care and pediatric pharmacy. Here are the specialties:
