About this Library


This 30-credit Certificate Program for pharmacists contains learning modules that provide the education and skills needed for pharmacists to initiate and perform MTM. The program provides practical courses to help pharmacists design and implement a successful MTM program, along with a comprehensive clinical section encompassing the most common medical conditions in which MTM is applied. This certificate program was developed in collaboration with nationally recognized MTM specialists from the faculty of the nation's top Schools of Pharmacy.

Projections suggest an increasing demand for pharmacists to expand their roles in healthcare delivery. This includes greater participation by pharmacists in medication therapy management (MTM) services. While MTM is primarily a Medicare-driven program, many of the skills used by pharmacists in MTM are applicable to collaborative practice agreements (CPAs), comprehensive medication management (CMM), and other arrangements that involve pharmacist participation in patient care.

This program provides a Certificate of training verifying that you have completed the course material, and is not a Certification program.

  • Better understand government and third-party payers to plan and perform MTM services
  • Identify and approach patients for MTM services
  • Administer the required paperwork to initiate and document MTM services
