Sally Hughes PharmD, RPh, BCMAS, is currently in her two-year post-doctoral fellowship in Clinical Management with HealthTrust and Belmont College of Pharmacy. Recently, she was able to pursue a board certification as a medical affairs specialist to further her experience and career options in the pharmaceutical industry with the Accreditation Council for Medical Affairs (ACMA).
Dr. Hughes achieved the Board-Certified Medical Affairs Specialist (BCMAS) certification from ACMA in May of 2021 and believes that it will open new doors and provide her with more in-depth industry training that is needed to excel in the medical affairs career path. The BCMAS certification is internationally recognized, and achieving the BCMAS demonstrates the ability to uphold global standards to the highest degree. By the end of the fellowship, she hopes to be a medical science Liaison for a pharmaceutical company and return to Washington.
