GERIATRIC PHARMACIST BOOT CAMP

Boot Camp IconYou're Invited

ASCP will host its next Geriatric Pharmacist Boot Camp in conjunction with the APhA Annual Meeting in National Harbor, MD from March 18-19, 2020.

Geriatric Pharmacist Boot Camp Live Stream. Bring a video stream of the Boot Camp stage and slides LIVE to your home or office! Learn more below.

Based on the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) Content Outline, this workshop helps participants either prepare for the 2020 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.

Please note that per BPS, you may only apply BCGP recertification credit to 2 bootcamps within your 7-year recertification cycle, and they must be separated by at least 2 years. At this time, the ASCP Geriatric Bootcamp may provide recertification credits for BCGP only.

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.
