The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy (DKICP) has received approval as sponsor of continuing education (CE) for doctoral-level psychologists from the American Psychological Association Continuing Education Committee.

“With this designation, DKICP becomes the only organization in Hawaiʻi that can offer CE to three licensed healthcare providers: psychologists, physicians and pharmacists,” said Karen Pellegrin, director of continuing education/strategic planning for DKICP. “This is especially gratifying as we enter the age of inter-professional healthcare.”

The college received accreditation to offer CE to pharmacists as well as physicians in 2009. The CE credit is a requirement for psychologists to remain licensed. DKICP becomes the fourth American Psychological Association approved center in Hawaiʻi. The approval is good for two years.

Representing all three professions, DKICP will present the first interdisciplinary CE course in Waikīkī on October 1–3. The workshop is called Pharmacotherapy in the Age of DSM-5, referring to American Psychological Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

To receive future announcements about CE events, contact the College of Pharmacy continuing education by email.

  1. Hurrah!….I remember meeting you with Dean Pezutto when I was trying to get my Tripler Army Clinical Health Psychology Postdocs into the certification. I heard from one that it did get off the ground.

    My best to our Dean..I continue to lobby in the Legislature for his building. Perhaps with the VA scam…you can get money from the VA.

    Call me if I can help
