Call for Appraisers for the National Awards Program



Dear Colleague,

If you have knowledge and interest in the following areas and want to help select this year’s award-winning projects, please consider submitting your name as an appraiser for the National Awards Program:

  • Administration/Management
  • Cardiology
  • Computers/Technology
  • Critical Care
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Nephrology
  • Oncology
  • Palliative Care
  • Pediatrics
  • Psychiatry
  • None of the above (general appraiser)

Award appraisers are critical to the success of CSHP’s National Awards Program. Your contribution to this process enhances the visibility of excellence in hospital pharmacy practice.

As an appraiser you must hold a professional degree in pharmacy and your CSHP membership dues must be paid for the current year. However, no prior review or research experience is required.

Where possible, submissions are distributed to those knowledgeable in the subject area and appraisers are asked to judge the projects based on contribution to patient care. Please note that appraisers are still able to submit to the national Awards Program. In this instance, you will be asked to review projects submitted to categories to which you have not applied.

Projects will be assigned to appraisers in mid-October. You will be asked to review up to three projects during the appraisal period. Award appraisers are asked to volunteer approximately one hour of their time per submission reviewed. This year’s appraisal period will run from October 8 to 31, 2020.

For more information, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page on

If you would like to serve as an appraiser please notify Robyn Rockwell, Membership & Awards Administrator, by September 30, 2020.
