requirement for credentialing.
Continuing Education Credit:
This program is open to all pharmacists. This program provides pharmacy participants 3.0 contact hour(s). To receive credit, the
pharmacy participant must follow the attendance procedure of the program and complete all program evaluation forms. If the
attendance documentation is illegible then no statement of credit can be issued. Credit will be given based on percent of attendance
down to the 3.0 contact hour(s). Statements of credit will be given out after completion of the program. Credentialing Certification
by the Arkansas State Board of Pharmacy requires completion of the Continuing Pharmacy Education activity and a score
of 70% or greater on the post-test in order to receive credentialing certification.
This procedure represents a formal mechanism whereby any pharmacist may obtain a review of a complaint of unfair treatment. A
pharmacist must file the grievance in writing within 30 days of the incident/activity generating the complaint. The complaint will be
reviewed by the Director of Continuing Education and every effort will be made to resolve the problem of the complainant. If the
complaint is not satisfactorily resolved, the complaint will be forwarded to the UAMS COP Dean for disposition.
