Hosted by US Pharmacopeia (USP)

Join your colleagues to hear about the ways US Pharmacopeia (USP) standards integrate into your pharmacy practice! Founded in 1820, USP is an independent, scientific nonprofit organization focused on building trust in the supply of safe, quality medicines. USP has worked to build trust where it matters most: in the world's medicines, dietary supplements, and foods. Through our rigorous science and the public quality standards we set, USP helps protect patient safety and improve the health of people around the world. Pharmaceutical science expertise, of our staff and world-wide volunteer experts, is the foundation of USP’s work to help advance public health and ensure the quality and safety of medicines. The United States Pharmacopeia–National Formulary (USP–NF) is composed of over 6,800 of those quality standards for medicines, both chemical and biologic; active pharmaceutical ingredients; and excipients (inactive ingredients). From medication selection and prescribing to preparation, storage, handling, and safety, USP touches medication management. We are committed to investing in the next generation of healthcare practitioners, especially pharmacists. Come learn more about our standards and how they can be translated to strengthen curriculum and expand the bridge between education and practice!
