In 1979, a small group of forward-thinking pharmacists saw a need to support the evolving practice of clinical
pharmacy. These charter members founded ACCP to meet this need and thereby laid the foundation for an
organization that now serves more than 12,000 clinical pharmacists.
Today, clinical pharmacists work in virtually every health care practice setting, dispelling the long-held belief that
clinical pharmacy resides only in academic and tertiary care institutions.
The primary professional position held by most ACCP members is that of clinical pharmacist, followed by
assistant professor and pharmacy manager/supervisor or clinical coordinator. Their primary practice or professional
setting is most often acute care. Their most frequently reported professional interest areas are infectious
diseases, critical care, internal medicine, ambulatory care, hematology/oncology, cardiology, and pharmacotherapy.
