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 Hypertension 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.

The next Specialists Examination testing period will be held from Saturday May 3th through Saturday May 17th, 2014. The Deadline for 2014 Applications has passed.
