This course is designed to help oncology pharmacy practitioners prepare for the Board
of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) Oncology Pharmacy Specialty Certification examination,
and obtain broad and detailed updates to their knowledge in oncology. Jointly sponsored
by ACCP and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, the course content is based
on the domains and knowledge areas tested on the examination.
This course is offered in two formats: live and home study. The live course is offered
once a year each May. The home study materials are typically available July 1, each year.
Participants who attend the live course receive the detailed electronic workbook, filled with patient
cases and practice-based self-assessment questions, and a copy of the instructional materials.
The home study course materials, which are derived from the live presentation of the Oncology
Pharmacy Preparatory Review and Recertification Course, are available in a variety of formats
to best suit your learning style.
The online and print packages are available for both continuing pharmacy education
credit and BCOP recertification credit*. Both the live and the home study formats
of the course will include access to a Web-based posttest.
A minimum of 20.0 hours of recertification credit will be available for
participants each year. To earn recertification credit from the Oncology Pharmacy
Preparatory Review and Recertification Course, BCOPs must attend the live program
or complete the instructional materials for home study and then successfully
complete the Web-based posttest by the deadline.
Note: The Oncology Pharmacy Preparatory Review and Recertification Course
must be completed for recertification credit, in either live or home study format,
at least once, but no more than three times, during the 7-year certification cycle.
