ACCP Academy

ACCP Academy

The ACCP Academy offers a flexible, curricular approach to enhancing ACCP member skills and experience through three professional development programs. Relying on interactive instruction via both live meetings and Zoom webinars, the curricula provide opportunities to apply key principles to everyday professional pursuits. Those who complete the respective program curricular and portfolio requirements will receive a certificate of completion, and additional recognition as graduates of the ACCP Academy.

Enrollment into the Academy is simple and easy. One enrollment fee includes access to portfolio assignments, access to all virtual programming delivered, and continuing education credit for the chosen track. The Academy is excited to announce that the certificate programs can now be completed virtually. No attendance at live meetings necessary! Enrollees will gain access to pre-recorded sessions or live webinars via Zoom and the opportunity to view recordings of each session for future reference.

Each one-year curriculum will include the option of in-person programming delivered during ACCP's Annual Meeting and virtual programming throughout the year. The Academy provides four, year-long professional development programs detailed below:

  • Leadership and Management
    The Leadership and Management Certificate Program was the second program to be offered in the ACCP Academy. Released by ACCP in 2007, this program is designed to enable participants to better lead their personal lives as well as guide and inspire their colleagues and associates in the workplace. The principles and approaches taught by a cadre of experienced leaders enable participants to better achieve respective organizational missions and advance their professional careers.
  • Research and Scholarship
    The Research and Scholarship Certificate Program, established in 2008, is designed to develop foundational clinical research and scholarly abilities, integrating research theory with practical applications while involving participants in scholarly activity across the curriculum.
  • Teaching and Learning
    Established in 2006, the Teaching and Learning Certificate Program was the first program offered by the ACCP Academy. This program is designed to help participants plan, present, and assess learning strategies in both classroom and experiential settings and to assist schools of pharmacy in recruiting and preparing clinical educators who inspire students to advance the pharmacy profession.
  • Comprehensive Medication Management Implementation
    The CMM Academy is designed to provide clinical pharmacists and clinical pharmacy administrators with the knowledge and skills to implement, enhance, or expand CMM services. Programming is delivered primarily via self-paced, on-demand modules. The program is designed to be completed over the course of 12-24 months as participants apply the information to implement or expand CMM services in their practice sites.
  • Billing and Contracting for Outpatient Clinical Pharmacy Services
    The newest ACCP Academy, launched in 2024, is designed to provide clinical pharmacists and clinical pharmacy administrators with the knowledge and skills to explore, identify, and implement billing and contracting strategies for outpatient clinical pharmacy services. This contemporary program is delivered primarily via self-paced, on-demand modules developed by billing and contracting experts. The program is designed to be completed over the course of 12-24 months along with the application assignments and foundational exam to demonstrate competence.
