Office of Continuing Pharmacy Education

The University of Cincinnati James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activities. This Office provides professional educational activities for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Our Mission is to enhance the practice of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians by providing opportunities for them to learn, acquire, and apply the latest knowledge, skills and attitudes required for contemporary practice in a variety of practice settings. 

We offer a variety of CPE activities to meet the needs of today’s practitioners. Currently we offer mostly live programs; however, we hope to offer additional online programs in the near future.
