The APC Fellows Program

APC’s Fellows Program recognizes distinguished service of member compounding pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to their profession and their communities.

Established in 1997, the Fellows Program distinguishes pharmacists – and, in 2022, pharmacy technicians – who are exemplary in their professionalism and commitment to the practice of pharmacy compounding. Each applicant’s credentials are assessed against rigorous criteria that include contributions to published literature, continuing education, presentations, leadership, professional and civic service as well as professional awards. The criteria are designed to maintain a balance between subject areas and to ensure that the APC Fellows are diverse in their practices and community activities.

APC Fellows meet stringent requirements designed to demonstrate their commitment to patient care through quality pharmacy compounding and the highest ethical and professional standards. 

Since the APC Fellows Program’s inception, 162 pharmacists and technicians have been honored as members of this elite group.

Fellowship is the highest distinction awarded by APC, the only professional association solely dedicated to pharmacy compounding.

Once a Fellow is inducted, they remain a Fellow so long as they are an APC member and adhere to the Alliance’s Code of Ethics, or until such time as they wish to no longer be recognized as a Fellow.

Fellows are encouraged to continue their professional involvement with APC and pharmacy compounding in general and may be called upon to help the board or staff with projects or vital information.
