Fellows Program

What is the CSHP Fellows Program?

The CSHP Fellow program was initiated 50 years ago to recognize members who, through their practice activities and contributions to CSHP and the profession, were worthy of a recognition that signified outstanding leadership, dedication and commitment to practice excellence and professional growth.

To date, 186 members of CSHP have achieved the distinction of being recognized as a “Fellow of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists” (FCSHP).

Why is it important?

The Fellow program rewards the long term, sustained efforts of candidates in the areas that service the Society, patient care, education or research, and the profession. Candidates for Fellow status are assessed in a peer review process after completing an application form which documents the member's achievements in several key criteria areas.

This category of membership which is not intended to be merely a means of recognizing hospital pharmacists for their achievements and contribution to the profession, but rather a means of providing a stimulus and challenge for hospital pharmacists to raise standards of professional service and make hospital pharmacy an even more attractive specialty.

Why should I apply?

Be a recognized member who serves as a model for others through exemplary practice.

Promote worthwhile contributions to the literature of pharmacy, research in pharmacy and promote the role of pharmacists as primary health care professionals through active involvement.
