To maintain your BPS Board Certification and remain in good standing, the payment of an Annual Certification Maintenance Fee is required for all BPS board certified pharmacists. The annual maintenance fee is currently $125 USD.
The mission of the Board of Pharmacy Specialties is to improve patient care by promoting the recognition and value of specialized training, knowledge, and skills in pharmacy and specialty board certification of pharmacists. BPS works diligently to educate pharmacists, other health professionals, and the public about specialty certification and the value it brings.
The annual certification maintenance fee supports the BPS mission by funding the ongoing work of BPS on behalf of its certified specialists:
- Maintenance of current, credible certification examinations
- Maintenance of recertification examinations and related processes
- Research on the impact and value of certification
- Exploring new specialty certifications.
A notice for the annual fee will be sent via email to all certificants in May of each year. Payment is due July 1.
