Boot Camp IconYou're Invited

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 BCGP-credentialed pharmacists.

Based on the Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy (CCGP) Content Outline (PDF) the course allows participants to help prepare for the exam or to refresh geriatric principles by working through practice skills and clinical case topics with other pharmacists and our subject matter experts. Attendees can register for Day 1, Day 2, or both days of the Boot Camp. Additionally, attendees registered for the full Boot Camp (Day 1 & Day 2) 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 early June 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:

  • New content outline
  • Increased number of questions from 150 to 175
  • Increased number of multiple choice options from 3 to 4

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.

Event FAQs

To receive continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit, participants must attend the activity in its entirety, complete the post-test with a grade of 70% or better, and evaluate the activity on the ASCP Learning Center* within 45 days of the activity (by June 14, 2017). To access the post-test and evaluation, participants must enter the CPE code for the educational activity. The CPE code will be announced during the activity introduction.
There will be a post-test to complete from each day. You will have ONE post-test attempt to achieve a 70% or higher. No partial credit will be given.
You must enter the CE code and complete the evaluation to receive credit. ASCP reports CPE attainment to ACPE and NABP via the CPE Monitor system. The course should be posted within 24-48 hours of evaluation completion. If you are a U.S. pharmacist, it is the responsibility of the participant to provide their correct date of birth (MMDD format) and NABP e-Profile ID on their member or guest profile on the ASCP Website.
