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.
