The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy’s Center for Innovative Pharmacy Solution is hosting the online training and anticipates a productive training collaboration to ensure medication safety with high standards for dispensing in all settings. The menu of training choices will continue to expand through this collaboration.  Future versions of this training are expected to involve a scientific review of the curriculum by the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy.
