CSHP is seeking award appraisers for the 2023-2024 National Awards Program and the Advanced Pharmacy Practice Residency Award (for pharmacy residents in a Year 2 Program). Award appraisers are critical to the success of these two programs -- your contribution to this process enhances the visibility of excellence in hospital pharmacy practice. To help select this year’s award-winning projects and to help celebrate hospital pharmacy excellence, please consider submitting your name as an appraiser for these awards programs.

Appraisers must be current CSHP members who hold a professional degree in pharmacy and who have been practicing in a hospital or other collaborative healthcare setting for at least five years. However, no prior review or research experience is required.
