The Academy recognizes program assessment and accreditation as vital components of all colleges and schools of pharmacy. To assist our members in fulfilling their assessment and accreditation goals, AACP is pleased to announce the launch of the new Assessment and Accreditation Management System (AAMS). Designed in partnership with the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, this new electronic resource provides desktop control for deans and others responsible for assessment strategies and accreditation self-study management.
The purpose of AAMS is to assist member colleges/schools of pharmacy with their assessment and accreditation-related activities. AAMS will streamline the compilation, management, analysis and reporting of data and documentation used for assessment and accreditation by storing assessment documents so that they are easily accessible and transferable into an accreditation report; tracking college/school’s progress by standard between accreditation self-studies; providing data from AACP annual surveys into accreditation reports; providing tables and peer comparisons quickly and easily for benchmarking; and compiling and submitting self-study reports, making a paper-intensive process electronic.
AACP is hosting several "Train the Trainer" training sessions for our members to learn how to utilize this resource. Invitation to these sessions will be based upon accreditation schedules. The CEO Dean of each member college/school will receive an e-mail notification and registration form prior to their invited session.
AACP’s ongoing development will bring new tools and strategies to the system that will continue to enhance your quality management processes. Access the online AAMS Webinar and Quick Start Guide to get an in-depth look into this new AACP institutional member service.
Have your CEO Dean contact AACP to receive information on training and how to access this resource.
AAMS is free to all AACP member colleges and schools of pharmacy.
