ACPE has a rich history of engagements and promoting information exchange internationally among organizations and agencies involved in the quality assurance of pharmacy education.

On April 11, 2017, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission for Higher Education Institutions (AQACHEI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). Both organizations agreed to cooperate and collaborate to advance the quality of pharmacy education internationally in accordance with their respective missions, visions, and goals.
Effective February 1, 2017, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the Australian Pharmacy Council (APC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and agreed to regularly communicate, share, and exchange information regarding accreditation criteria, system policies, standards, guidelines, manuals, tools, and publications.
Effective February 1, 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was approved by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP). ACPE and CCAPP agreed to exchange information related to activities undertaken, trends, developments, and advances in pharmacy education in their respective countries.
On November 15, 2014, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the Canadian Council on Continuing Education In Pharmacy (CCCEP) consented to a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) so that both organizations could study their respective quality assurance systems, policies and procedures, and the pharmacy education and training in their respective areas of operation.
Effective July 1, 2016, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was endorsed by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA). CAA agreed to accept ACPE as one of the preferred international agencies for the international recognition of UAE college and university pharmacy programs. ACPE agreed to make available to CAA its resources pool of appropriately qualified reviewers for the evaluation and assessment of UAE pharmacy degree programs.
On July 21, 2017, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) International Quality Group (CIQG) signed a Memorandum of Affiliation (MOA) to signify their respective commitments to the seven international quality principles of CIQG. As part of the MOA, ACPE agrees to promote these Principles, work with other higher education stakeholders to promote a shared understanding of quality based on the seven Principles, share information regularly on the promotion and implementation of the Principles and engage, when feasible, in joint activities with a view to sharing effective policies and practices in areas of common interest.
On July 1, 2013, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the Conférence Internationale des Doyens de Pharmacie d’Expression Francaise (CIDPHARMEF). Both ACPE and CIDPHARMEF acknowledged to communicate, cooperate and explore opportunities in the international arena.
Effective July 1, 2012, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the Global Alliance for Pharmacy Education (GAPE) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). Both organizations committed to ensuring that the core business, expertise, and experience of both parties are acknowledged and utilized to best advantage to enhance the efforts and outcomes of all parties in the global arena.
Effective September 12, 2017, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education and the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) mutually agreed to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). ACPE and FIP will strive to cooperate and collaborate in order to facilitate information exchange and convene at least annually to discuss current and future collaborations.
In the past several years, ACPE’s International Services Program has collaborated with Management Sciences for Health (MSH) in the Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program. Initially, ACPE conducted a survey of pharmacy education, regulation and practice issues in low- and middle-income countries identified by MSH. The survey prompted a project in which ACPE representatives traveled to the Democratic Republic of Congo for a consultative visit to the University of Kinshasa, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences (FOPS). After the visit, ACPE produced a report titled “Recommendations for Advancing Pharmacy Education in the Democratic Republic of the Congo”. Later on, ACPE was asked again to provide an additional consultation for the University of Kinshasa FOPS to draft the strategic plan for the curriculum, including the desired graduate competencies and the curricular content.

In addition, ACPE was contracted by MSH to develop a report on quality assurance of continuing education and continuing professional development. The report entitled “Continuing Pharmaceutical Education: Guide to Establishing Quality Assured and Accredited Programs”.

Effective July 1, 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was approved by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education and the National Authority for Quality Assurance and Accreditation of Education (NAQAAE). Both organizations agreed to collaborate, cooperate and regularly communicate with each other regarding their activities in their respective areas of operation.
Effective February 1, 2018, the ACPE Board of Directors approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education and the National Center for Academic Accreditation and evAluation (NCAAA). Both organizations agreed to cooperate and collaborate to advance the quality of pharmacy education internationally in accordance with their respective missions, visions and goals.
Effective February 1, 2017, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland (PSI). ACPE and PSI accepted to explore opportunities for collaboration in international activities and to cooperate in any other manner as mutually agreed.

ACPE 提供除美国之外的药学学位课程认证。ACPE 目前不接受美国之外的药学博士(臨床药学士, PharmD)课程认证申请,ISP 将不提供专业学位课程认证。位于黎巴嫩比布鲁斯的黎巴嫩美国大学(Lebanese American University)的一个药学课程在 2002 年 6 月获得了 ACPE 的认证。该课程继续获得认证,其政策、程序和标准与 ACPE 认证的所有其他药学博士(臨床药学士)课程相同。
认证或暂时认证不可绕过 NABP 为外国毕业生设置的要求。如需进一步说明,请将您的问题直接发给 NABP:联系电话:+1 847 391 4406;电子邮件:custserv@nabp.net;网址:https://nabp.pharmacy/
ACPE 可对美国之外的药学继续教育提供者提供认证。ACPE 不认证单独的继续教育活动;然而,通过一些其认证的供应商(依据所谓“联合赞助协议”),已经向其他国家的会议和专题讨论会授予 ACPE 认证。
ACPE 不认证加拿大的药学院系学位课程。这是由加拿大药学教育评估委员会(CCAPP)完成的,其网址为 www.ccapp-accredit.ca。ACPE 与加拿大的对口机构密切合作。CCAPP 在制定其加拿大药学本科学位课程的现行标准时,是依据 ACPE 的药学博士(臨床药学士)标准进行的。
ACPE 会规律地接受来自希望发展或提高其自身药学教育质量保证体系的国家的协助请求—无论是学位课程还是药学继续教育。ACPE 在以下领域为世界各地提供支持和指导:
  • 专业学位课程认证
  • 咨询
  • 研讨会和培训课程

ACPE 也参加了很多国际活动、项目和方案。参见 ISP 合作

ACPE 致力于推动在药学教育质量保证方面相关各组织和机构间的信息交流。在过去的几年中,ACPE 的工作人员积极参与了国际药学联合会(FIP)发起的药学教育质量保证的国际论坛。ACPE 的工作人员已经参加了数次论坛会议。

ACEP 的使命是确保和推进药学教育。虽然其主要焦点和大多数活动和努力始终在美国进行,ACPE 相信为完成其使命,它应参与到其边界之外的事物中。ACPE 承认它可以对其他国家的经验和方案做出贡献,并从中学习。ACPE 也认知到在药学行业内,在一般教育领域内以及在药学教育的质量保证和质量提升的具体领域监控和影响全球趋势和发展中,所获得的利益。

药学教育质量保证国际论坛是参与药学教育或对其感兴趣的个人和组织的一个非正式沟通网络。它在国际药学联合会教育推动委员会(Education Initiatives of the International Pharmaceutical Federation,FIP-Ed)的支持下 ,已在 FIP 的年度会议上召集了十三次会议(2001 – 2013)。


  • 促进药学专业教育的卓越发展
  • 为药学教育质量保证领域的信息交流、协助与合作提供国际论坛,无论在本科毕业学位教育,还是毕业获得药师资格后的药学继续教育以及持续专业成长方面
  • 促进和推动对药学教育质量保证感兴趣的个人、机构、协会以及其他团体之间的交流,并鼓励积极参与,以实现以下目标:
    • 在没有正式质量保证体系的国家建立质量保证体系,以及
    • 对现有质量保证体系的持续质量改进
目前论坛是由 FIP 药学教育专门工作组的实践社团(CoP)负责运作。
ACPE 认证标准是受版权保护的。希望采纳或改编 ACPE 标准的任何人应与 ACPE 联系,ACPE 将有兴趣倾听此类方案,并且可能乐于提供协助。然而,必须强调的是 ACPE 标准是使用美国的教育系统和医疗服务体系而制定的。标准所依据的结果能力反映了对美国药师的期望水平及其实践范围,是以患者为中心的照护为基本实践理念。因此标准的直接翻译文本可能不会在其他国家完全适用。

在美国使用的认证体系可能也与其他地区的质量保证方法不同。ACPE 是独立的自主机构,而在其他许多国家,质量保证是由政府机构、专业机构或者监管机构负责的。然而,本标准中包含的框架以及大多数或者所有核心原则应适用于大多数环境,如果为符合本地需求和环境加以修改,ACPE 标准也许可以作为制定特定国家标准的基础。

ACPE 的 ISP 已经制订了国际质量标准,并提供了美国及其属地之外的药学专业学位课程认证。

不是。设立 ISP 的可能性、可行性和影响是经 ACPE 董事会认真和透彻研究的。ISP 作为一项自我支持的计划而设计和创立,并没有从 ACPE 的其他核心活动中抽取资源。ACPE 董事会致力于确保 ISP 对推进 ACPE 在美国和全世界的使命做出重大贡献。
