It includes an overview of the marketplace for delivering MTM services, guidance for implementing MTM services in pharmacy practice, a review of the essential skills and knowledge needed for performing MTM successfully, and an organized process for identifying medication-related problems. The purpose of this certificate training program is to prepare pharmacists to improve medication use through the delivery of MTM services in a variety of practice settings.

Registration for OPA members is now open. OPA members have preferred and discounted registration for this program. If space allows, non-member registration will open the week of December 7. Registration for student pharmacists is not available for this program.
