The ASCP Geriatric Pharmacist Boot Camp is a two-day workshop with advanced training to help pharmacists prepare for the board certification examination and to offer recertification credits to board certified geriatric pharmacists (BCGPs).
Based on the Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy (CCGP) Content Outline (PDF), the course allows participants to help prepare for the 2017 exam or to refresh geriatric principles by working through practice skills and clinical case topics with other pharmacists and our subject matter experts. Attendees have the option to purchase the Flex Plan*—recordings from both days—for $99. As a special offer, all registrants will receive a coupon to purchase the 90-day subscription of the BCGP Self-Assessment Exam for $20 USD (normally $89).
*Flex Plan recordings will be released late October 2017. These recordings do not include additional CPE or BCGP credits to Boot Camp attendees.
Starting in 2018, the exam will have the following changes:
Board certification demonstrates superior knowledge and expertise beyond a licensed pharmacist.
Certification credentials may be useful in qualifying for a promotion with a current employer or in obtaining a job with a new employer.
The BCGP Boot Camp is for pharmacists preparing to take the BCGP certification exam and for BCGPs who wish to receive recertification credits.
