Pharmacy Residency Excellence Awards
Supported by an educational donation from Amgen, Inc.
The 2014 application cycle is now closed. Please check back for information about the next program offering or sign up for the ASHP Foundation Enews for the latest information.
The Pharmacy Residency Excellence Awards program was created with the intent of recognizing excellence and leadership in the training and mentoring of pharmacy residents -- training that is crucial to the development of future leaders and raising the level of practice.
This awards program will honor leading practice facilities and mentors in pharmacy residency training. The facilities that conduct residency training are the forerunners in excellence, leadership, innovation and training in the United States. Key decision makers in health-system practice are mentors for future leaders in pharmacy practice.
The program has two goals:
1. to recognize the achievements of residency programs and practitioners who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in the training of pharmacy residents, and
2. to widely disseminate the results of these accomplishments in order to foster innovations in pharmacy residency training.
Application materials must be completed and received in full by the deadline date in order to be evaluated. Applications will be reviewed by members of a selection panel using the criteria listed for each award category. Only required application materials will be forwarded to the selection panel. If no applications for a specific category are deemed worthy, the selection panel reserves the right to not choose an awardee in a given year.
The selection panel has the option to select two finalists for an award category and schedule teleconference interviews to assist in determining an award recipient.
Selection panel members, ASHP staff members, ASHP Foundation staff members, members of the ASHP Research and Education Foundation Board of Directors, members of the ASHP Board of Directors, contractors and lead surveyors retained by ASHP accreditation services, and the respective residency programs of any of the above, are not eligible to apply for the Pharmacy Residency Excellence Awards.
As a means of achieving high profile recognition and wide dissemination of the awards program, winner(s) and their organization(s) will be announced in the December and January issues of the American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy.
The recipient(s) of the Pharmacy Residency Leadership Awards will be honored at a presentation and reception during the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting.
