ASH Hypertension Specialists Program, Inc.

The ASH Hypertension Specialists Program was formed by the American Society of Hypertension, Inc. (ASH) in 1998 in response to the growing recognition that the hypertension problem requires the coordinated effort of front-line health care providers and those physicians with documented expertise in managing hypertension. The ASH Specialists Program created the Specialist in Clinical Hypertension designation for the specific purpose of identifying and recognizing physicians with expert skills and knowledge in the management of clinical hypertension and related disorders. These physicians can act as local and regional consultants for the more complex and difficult cases and also assist in advice regarding guidelines and process improvement. To date, designation has been granted to approximately 1500 physicians practicing in the United States, Canada and other countries.

The dates for the 2016 ASH Hypertension Specialist Examination testing period are May 7 through May 25, 2016, with an application deadline of March 15, 2016. The 2016 Handbook for Candidates and online application link will be available in Mid-November.​
