DALLAS, TX -- Apexus, the nation’s premiere national resource for 340B educational programs, is announcing the release of a long awaited assessment-based 340B certificate program: The Apexus Advanced 340B Operations Certificate Program. The program will prepare individuals to serve as leaders and experts within their organizations by elevating their 340B knowledge in a consistent, measurable and validated way, while improving program integrity and compliance.

The Apexus Advanced 340B Operations Certificate Program offers specialized in-depth training to individuals who are in high-impact positions regarding 340B implementation, including 340B managers or coordinators, pharmacy directors, and purchasers/buyers, as well as suppliers, vendors and consultants.

“It is imperative that 340B covered entities maintain eligibility in the program in order to provide care for at-risk and underserved patients,” said JoAnn Maack, RPh, System Director, Pharmacy Operations, Memorial Hermann Health System and Apexus Advisory Council Member. “This certification offers specialized training and expertise that is essential for 340B leaders to implement and sustain a reliable and compliant 340B Program.”

The 340B Drug Pricing Program plays a critical role in helping covered entities to better serve their communities, and the individuals who administer the program help ensure access to high quality care for our most vulnerable patients.
