Program Description: 

The Psychiatric Certificate Program (PCP) is a practice-based activity designed for pharmacists in all practice settings. The intent of this training program is to provide additional training in the area of psychiatric pharmacy to enhance pharmacists’ clinical knowledge that can be applied directly to the patients they serve. 

Program Overview:

The Psychiatric Certificate Program is conducted in two parts: the self-study and live training seminar. To earn a certificate of achievement, participants must successfully complete all components of the program, including the self-study modules, the self-study assessment, patient based cases, live training seminar and final examination. All participants are strongly encouraged to attend a Medication Therapy Management training program prior to completing this program but it is not a prerequisite of this course. 


Program Goals:

  • Provide training to enhance a practitioner’s ability to effectively assess, monitor, and manage the pharmacotherapy of patients with psychiatric disorders.

  • Deliver comprehensive medication therapy management to prevent, treat, and control psychiatric disorders using patient-centered care.

  • Promote appropriate and optimal medication use and adherence that minimizes drug interactions, poly pharmacy, and adverse effects.

  • Encourage healthy life styles and non-drug treatment approaches for optimizing a person’s mental and physical health.
