Recertification Criteria for Infectious Diseases Pharmacy: BCIDP recertifying via continuing education are required to earn 100 hours of continuing education credit provided by the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists (SIDP), the joint program offered by the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP), and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Specialty Recertification Courses offered by any of the approved providers may only be completed for recertification credit up to two times, in nonconsecutive years, during the 7-year recertification cycle.
