Why is it Important for Specialty Pharmacists to Become Certified?

Brandon Newman, PharmD, CSP, Program Director, Vanderbilt Specialty Pharmacy, talks about why the Certified Specialty Pharmacist distinction is significant.

Newman: I think the CSP credential is really similar to what URAC Accreditation is for specialty pharmacies these days.

For me, I think the CSP credential is a way to validate your knowledge in the specialty pharmacy space. What we’re seeing is that more and more payers and manufacturers are looking for specialty pharmacists have the CSP credential.
