The Idaho Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ISHP) is a non-profit corporation, founded as a state-affiliate chapter of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) in 1956. While most ISHP members practice in hospital and health-systems, we support pharmacy professionals practicing in diverse settings, including those in the community setting.
One of the most tangible benefits of ISHP membership are our continuing pharmacy education programs. ISHP is the only pharmacy association in Idaho that provides ACPE-accredited CE, which is required by Idaho law. ISHP sponsors two educational meetings each year. The Annual Fall Meeting is a three-day event in Sun Valley, ID that usually occurs late September/early October. The Spring Meeting is usually a two-day event in Boise, ID in April. Our meetings offer premiere educational programming, usually featuring one or more nationally-recognized speakers. Our meetings offer pharmacy-, technician-, and student-specific programming. We like to say that we have a "tradition of excellence" in our programs.
