Boot Camp IconYou're Invited

ASCP will host its virtual Geriatric Pharmacist Boot Camp from March 9-11, 2021. Learn more below.

Based on the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) Content Outline, this workshop helps participants either prepare for the 2021 exam or to refresh their knowledge of geriatric principles by working through practice skills and clinical case topics with other pharmacists and subject matter experts.

Why BCGP certification?

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.

Boot Camp IconAudience

The Geriatric Pharmacist Boot Camp is for pharmacists preparing to take the BCGP certification exam and for BCGPs who wish to receive recertification credits. The course is also for those who work or want to work more with seniors.
