Forty eight pharmacists selected to take part in pilot.
The participants in the Credentialing of Advanced Practice Pharmacists pilot program have been selected, with 48 confirming they will take part.
The Australian Pharmacy Council said 138 pharmacists submitted expressions of interest and 50 were invited to participate.
The pharmacists would prepare a practice portfolio as per the draft Evidence Guide (PD 22 Oct 14) and submit it in early April to be evaluated for no fee (PD 05 Nov 14).
Participants would possibly be awarded the credential of advanced practice pharmacist, the Council said.
Council president John Low said the project showed the depth and breadth of the pharmacy profession and its potential for a bright future.
