Washington, D.C. – The Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) opens applications for board-certified pharmacists to apply to the 2023-2025 BPS Ambassador cohort. BPS Board-Certified Pharmacists who are advancing practice in their communities, improving patient care, and educating the next generation of pharmacists are encouraged to apply and submit a three-minute video using this link by June 4, 2023.
